MOSCOW, April 7. /TASS/. The US missile strike against Syria’s
facilities was an act of aggression and impairs both Russian-US
relations and the key goal of fighting international terrorism, Russian
Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday citing the
opinion of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
President Putin considers the US strikes against Syria an act of
aggression against a sovereign country violating the norms of
international law, and under a trumped-up pretext at that,” Peskov
stressed. He noted that the Syrian army has no stockpiles of chemical
weapons. “The fact that all Syrian armed forces’ chemical weapons
stockpiles were eliminated was registered and confirmed by the
Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), a
specialized UN unit,” he highlighted.
“Putin believes that the total disregard for the use of chemical
weapons by terrorists only exacerbates the situation significantly,”
Peskov went on to say. “Putin also sees the strikes on Syria by the US
as an attempt to divert the attention of the international community
from numerous civilian casualties in Iraq.”
“Washington’s move substantially impairs Russian-US relations, which are in a deplorable state as it is,” Peskov emphasized.
“And, most importantly, Putin believes that this step does not bring
us closer to the ultimate goal in the fight against international
terrorism. On the contrary, it creates serious obstacles to efforts in
forging an international coalition to fight against it and effectively
counter this global evil. By the way, US President Donald Trump
proclaimed this as one of the key objectives during his election
campaign,” the Kremlin spokesman explained.
The US military fired at least 50 cruise missiles at a military base
of the Syrian government forces in the Homs province last night. The
missile strike comes in response to what Washington believes was the
Syrian government’s use of banned chemical weapons in the province of
Idlib. The Tomahawk cruise missiles were intended for a single target –
an airfield in the Homs province from which, according to the US
intelligence data, the alleged chemical attack was launched.
US President Donald Trump confirmed that he had given the order to carry out the strike.
