Russia expects the United States will support UN security Council resolution on the sponsors of the oil is prohibited in the Russian Federation the terrorist group “Islamic state” (IG). This was stated by Minister of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov following meeting with Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem.
“Everything is learned in practice, let us talk about facts. There were many posts that the oil fields captured by ISIS who has not fed, he said. When our aircraft began to work at the request of Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian airspace, from the air we saw the whole picture of the illegal oil business.

Putin “hard to believe” that Ankara does not know about the supply of oil from terrorists from Syria
“Us coalition began to fly in the skies over Iraq and over Syria, incidentally, without the consent of the Syrian government more than a year before our air and space forces, – noted the Minister. – I’m sure they all saw it, but for some reason did not touch. Only when the Russian VKS began to work in the area, but then began to bear the blows of this criminal industry”.
“And Yes, of course, is hardly a mere coincidence that after that our Turkish neighbors began to behave very nervously, to put it mildly,” added the Minister.
“How they (Turkey) is carefully guarded information about their underground illegal transactions, says at least the arrest of two Turkish journalists for reporting about the illegal supply of weapons from Turkey to Fighters (fighters banned in the Russian Federation the terrorist group “Islamic state” – approx.), – said Lavrov. – So my answer is very simple: if the U.S. is so worried about the fact that the illegal oil fields bring income to anyone, illegal oil industry should not continue to function”.
According to the Minister, the US coalition from the very beginning it was necessary to stop this activity, to destroy this business. “Coalition of the USA and the Americans themselves began to do so only after it was actively engaged in VKS RF. Then the American partners were to do that, I would say, somehow forced to keep something from us in the fight against the terrorist infrastructure,” he said.
The Minister of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation has reminded, what exactly at the initiative of Moscow adopted UN security Council resolution 2199 that prohibits any trade captured terrorists for oil. “We have now made a concrete proposal to the UN security Council to authorize the UN Secretary-General two weeks to prepare a report summarizing all available information regarding who supports this illegal oil industry IG, – he said. – We hope that this information will be provided to the members of the UN security Council. We continuously introduce the topic in the agenda, we are interested in here was clear”.
“We hope that the United States once Secretary of state John Kerry so concerned about all the different aspects of the problem, we’ll hold, and such the resolution would be adopted, and the relevant information will be presented to the entire world community”, – said Lavrov.
