Alwaght- Russia says the coalition forces led by the US are only exacerbating the situation in Syria and have made no contribution to fighting terrorism.
said despite the fact, Russian forces have reached their set goals in fighting terrorism in Syria.
Speaking at a meeting in Moscow on Tuesday, Russian Defense Minister noted that the US-led alliance’s assistance for Russia’s Syria campaign “did not rate at a zero, but a negative score, and to my great regret we did not see this support.”
Shoigu's comments came two days after US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter claimed that the Russians had given "virtually zero" support to Washington in its alleged fight against ISIS terrorists in Syria and Iraq.
The Russian official also stressed that coalition’s non-cooperation “required the exertion of all our forces, all our capabilities, deploying quite a serious grouping including aircraft carriers and others".
Separately on Tuesday, Russian Chief of General Staff Valery Gerasimov said the coalition airstrikes did not have "any significant results" in Syria and caused a "considerable number of deaths among civilians and government troops."
