U.S Vice President Joe Biden has expressed his country’s readiness to intervene militarily in Syria, if a peaceful settlement of the conflict fails. This was reported by RIA Novosti.
He also added that he considers his personal duty to be the liberation of the Iraqi city of Mosul from terrorists of “Islamic State”.
“We are in contact with Ankara and Baghdad and other stakeholders on Iraq, and will try to return to Mosul, to save it from ISIS,” said Joseph Biden.
The activities of the terrorist organization “Islamic State” are declared illegal in Russia.
O.R: Other quotes from Biden’s conference:
“ISIL is not the only existential threat… the PKK is equally a threat and we are aware of that.”
“The PKK has shown no desire or inclination to do that (live in peace). It is a terrorist group plain and simple. And what they continue to do is absolutely outrageous.”
