The reaction of the American authorities to visit the legitimate President of Syria Bashar al-Assad to Moscow was regrettable, said the Deputy foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Ryabkov. Earlier, White house press Secretary commented on the meeting 2 favorites, noting that, in his opinion, it is contrary to the official position of the Kremlin.
On the international political scene Russia in turn stands for a political and diplomatic solution to all of the resulting crises and difficulties. To comply with the usual framework and Syria - after in the country will be eliminated the terrorist forces should be initiated the peace process, why the need for the efforts of all parties, even the legitimate President Bashar al-Assad.
"Sincere dialogue between the President of the Russian Federation with the legally elected Trustee of the SAR is Central to finding ways to political isolation. It's undeniable for all thing", - quotes TASS of the Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Ryabkov. However, in Washington such a deal, for whatever reason, do not share.
So, the Deputy White house spokesman Eric Schultz announced that the visit of Bashar al-Assad to Moscow, in his opinion, contradicts the Russian Federation stated the aim of ensuring a political transition in Syria. "It is regrettable that in Washington with distrust and hostility relate to our efforts at the highest level to address the problems, largely formed as a result of short-sighted and basically false policy of the United States in the middle East," said Sergei Ryabkov.
"In the process of negotiations in the Kremlin considerable attention has been paid to specifically political component of resolving the situation in Syria," he said. Remember, the talks between President of Russia Vladimir Putin and Bashar al-Assad took place on 20 October. Russian Favorit assured his Syrian colleague that Moscow's position conditional settlement of the Syrian incident has not changed - the exit from crisis is possible only through a political process with the participation of all political forces, ethnic and religious groups.
Assad himself, besides, thanked Putin and Russian citizens for their contribution to the fight against international terrorism, which is considered a real obstacle to a political settlement in Syria. The Syrian favorite visit to Moscow was his 1st foreign trip since the exacerbation of the country's crisis in 2011.
To come to a common opinion conditionally this trip to the United States is not under force. "We consider the reception with the red carpet extended to Assad, contrary to the stated inhabitants of Russia for the purpose of ensuring a political transition in Syria," declared Deputy White house press Secretary Eric Schultz.
However, the boss of the press service of state Department of the United States John Kirby at a regular press briefing for correspondents made almost diametrically opposite in meaning statements. He expressed doubt that this trip might somehow interfere with the political process. "Moscow and Damascus have their own relationship," - said the representative of the American foreign Ministry.
