GORKI, October 16. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that the refusal of the United States from negotiations on Syria shortsighted and weak position.

According to the Prime Minister, the position taken by Washington with respect to the proposal of Russian President Vladimir Putin to host the delegation from Russia headed by the Prime Minister, “this is a stupid behavior.”
“As a result of such decisions and the rejection of negotiations the Americans are just showing their weakness,” – said Medvedev.

“We’ll see, we are open to discuss any questions about what the President said, I would like to repeat once again”, – concluded the Prime Minister.

The United States-led coalition against terrorist group “Islamic state” for his actions in Syria have not achieved any results, said the Prime Minister.
