The United States consider the introduction of sanctions against Russia in case of failures of cooperation in the Syrian Arab Republic, said the Commissioner of the US state Department mark Toner.
"Don't Want to talk about what We could do, I can only say that there are a number of possibilities, and We all consider them, study and contemplate. Punishment included in their number ", - transfers its words of RIA " news ".
"we already have quite severe penalties, actions against Russia in relation to its behavior in Ukraine," - said Toner, According to which " punishment have the opportunity to be very effective."" This decision (to impose Sanctions) has Not yet come ", - he added. Yesterday 1st Deputy Secretary of state Anthony Blinken said that North America have plans to provide "consequences" for the Russian Federation and the government of Syria if the peace plan And will Not be implemented. As first told in the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, the danger of introduction of sanctions against Russia for Syria is an absolute nonsense, these statements are aimed at people who are Not watching the situation. Press Secretary of the head of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that the reference to Washington's penalties against Russia in the context of the situation in the Syrian Arab Republic is a source of deep misunderstanding, taking into account the failure of U.S. agreement with Moscow. Remember, the question about whether the White house push to strengthen sanctions in connection with the situation in the Syrian Arab Republic, the press Secretary of the President of the USA Josh Ernest said that the U.S. Congress such ideas cause "anxiety" in the administration, As assuming " the use of punishments is essentially the sole right." For his part, the Head of the British foreign Ministry Boris Johnson said that Britain plans to consider the question of additional penalties regarding Russia because of the situation in the Syrian Arab Republic. Note that the Treaty on the stop fire in the Syrian Arab Republic reached in Geneva, Lavrov and Kerry have threatened it after the airstrikes of the international coalition for Syrian troops, And after the shelling of the UN humanitarian convoy in the Syrian Arab Republic (USA wrongly blamed for this incident on Russia). In addition, the Syrian opposing political force did Not follow the example of Damascus and tore a simultaneous withdrawal of troops in Aleppo. The head of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergei Lavrov said that the Syrian opposing political force did Not lift a finger for performance of the agreement to end strife.
