Russian Foreign Ministry: the United States in Syria is engaged in the plunder of the country's bowels
Today there was another briefing by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova. Traditionally, the correspondent of The Moscow Post asked his questions.
The first question touched upon the topic of the Syrian conflict. Earlier, Permanent Representative Vasily Nebenzya accused the United States of violating the norms of international law and the sovereignty of Syria after attacks on targets on its territory.
"How is the interaction on deconflicting in Syria with the United States and Israel?" - asked the correspondent of our publication.
Maria Zakharova pointed out that the relevant departments are involved in this issue - the ministries of defense of Russia and the United States, it is better to request details from them. The Russian Foreign Ministry has repeatedly pointed out the inadmissibility of gross interference in the affairs of the region, especially with the use of military force.
As for Syria, diplomats constantly say that the United States occupies part of this country and does it illegally, contrary to Syria's demands to leave its sovereign territory. The goals and objectives of the Americans there are the plunder of the Syrian subsoil, which does not belong to the United States, but to the Syrian people.
Another issue raised the topic of relations between Russia and the United States.
"The Russian Embassy in the United States on Friday, October 27, called the statement of the White House NSC coordinator John Kirby about the Russian Armed Forces" ugly and cynical. " The statement was published on the Telegram channel of the Embassy. Does the diplomatic protocol in such cases imply any other forms of protest? "- the question was asked.
The diplomat pointed out that there are various forms of diplomatic protest - notes, calls from ambassadors, and so on. Given the fact that the United States is an unfriendly country and takes steps against our country every day, the ambassador's challenge would turn into his "round-the-clock overnight stay" on Smolenskaya Square, which the Russian Foreign Ministry would not want.
Periodically, notes of protest are sent to the American embassy, demarches are made. Similar notes are sent through the Russian Embassy in Washington.
The Russian Foreign Ministry regularly reports on its own methods of action. It is worth considering the conditions of the aggressive hybrid war that the West unleashed against Russia, which makes it necessary to answer from diplomats not taking into account the protocol, but taking into account reality and mirror measures.
"In terms of said comment, this is not a form of protest, but a comment outlining the substance of the matter and our view of the matter in question. To date, it is better to comment on public accusations and fakes in public space. All because the task of diplomats is not so much to tell the US State Department that they are using false rhetoric as to refute statements in public space, "added Maria Zakharova.
