The United States has not received approval of actions to topple unwanted regimes and sponsoring all sorts of paramilitary organizations in the middle East, recalled the Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev.
At that time, as Moscow's actions in the region excellent belief on the basis of international law, Washington is engaged in Syria partizanskoy, he said.
In the hall of columns held a joint meeting of the members of the Federation Council and deputies of the state Duma, dedicated to the fight against terrorism. At the meeting, besides members of Parliament, there are the heads of the legislative authorities of subjects of the power, the followers of religious confessions and public organizations.
Without international consolidation to combat the combined threat of terrorism to eliminate will not come out, convinced the audience. However for the unification process there are many obstacles, even very unconstructive stance taken by a number of Western States.
"I would like to remind you we will communicate in the international arena even with States that have declared us the penalties with States which for a long time was called (and some still call) our country one of the largest threats. Clearly, the creation of large-scale anti-terrorist coalition initiated by the President of the Russian Federation, inhibited not our government", - noted in a joint meeting of both chambers of Parliament, the Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev.
"The key issue is the willingness and desire to cooperate with Russian Federation, with our partners, without any previous conditions on the part of States that are currently included in another, illegitimate, coalition running the United States. No matter what the coalition should have full international legitimacy, which means that it should operate under the auspices of the United Nations, in accordance with its mandate, demanding to adhere to international law, including respect for sovereignty conformable countries," he said.
"In other words, no secondary goals, like offset unwanted regimes in the region as a guerilla fight on the ground of sovereign States", - said Konstantin Kosachev. In fact, many experts agree that American efforts are focused mainly on the proposal of political pressure on the authorities of the States of the region, not counterterrorism.
"Russia's actions are beyond reproach in the eyes of international law, unlike the activity of the coalition of the United States and its allies. The composition of the participants here plays virtually no role. In international law the principle of "We are more, we are right" does not exist", - said the MP. With all this, Russia has for operations in Syria even double legitimacy after the terrorist attack on a passenger airliner Airbus A321.
