Russian official: US-led attacks on Syria come as the country had a chance for peace
MOSCOW, Russia – Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Facebook that the US-led attacks on Syria come as a chance for peace was emerging.
“Those behind it lay claim to moral leadership in this world and declare their exclusiveness and uniqueness,” she said.
“In fact, it takes a very peculiar kind of uniqueness to attack Syria’s capital at a time when the country has received a chance for peace at last”.
“The White House says its certainty about a chemical attack by Damascus relies on the media, on reports about symptoms, videos and photos, and also on credible information.” she said.
“After that statement the US and all other Western media should be aware of their responsibility for what has happened. Fifteen years ago the White House used a test tube and its secretary of state. Now Washington has used the media instead of the test tube.”
