Hocus Pokus Department
Not a word on Turkey and Saudi Arabia, and their prospective invasion of Syria. Interesting…
BTW. It looks like it is the USA which is cornered now pricked “joyfully” with former UNSC resolution on Syria. But the US is known (just as Russia) giving a damn to all agreements not suiting her interests.
Russia FM: Syrian army backed by Russian planes unblocked Aleppo from east
From: TASS, February 12, 8:29
– “MUNICH, February 12. /TASS/. The Syrian army backed by Russian warplanes unblocked Aleppo from the east, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after the talks on Syria settlement in Munich.
The minister stressed that Russia would carry on with its air military operations against terrorists as they are not subject to truce in Syria.
“It is stated in our documents – and we talked about it – that ceasefire will not include Islamic State, Jebhat al-Nusra and other affiliated organizations that were recognized as terrorist by UN Security Council. That is why our Aerospace Defense Forces will carry on their operation against these organizations,” Lavrov said after the meeting of International Syria Support Group at the Munich Security Conference.
“Talking about the task force that will develop the modalities and later monitor observation of ceasefire with help from the military, I think that it will help effectively solve many issues and resolve misunderstandings and miscommunication,” the foreign minister said adding that “we consider this as one of the most important results of the meeting.”
Lavrov also noted that Russia’s proposals to the United States on military cooperation in Syria are still in force.
As for a possible ground military operation against the Islamic State (terrorist group outlawed in Russia) in the country, the Russian diplomat once again pointed out that it would only escalate tensions. (…)“
