Washington has allowed strikes on positions of government troops of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. This was at the briefing said the official representative of the White house Josh Ernest.
“Military action against the Assad regime with the aim to resolve the situation in Aleppo is probably unlikely to achieve the goals, and now is the reduction of violence. It is most likely that this will lead to unintended consequences that are not in our national interests. However, I would not exclude any possibility,” said Ernest.
That the White house discussed the question of air strikes on the positions of government troops in Syria, reported on Wednesday the newspaper the Washington Post, citing sources.
Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, commenting on this information, said that in conversations with U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry never went speech about the possibility of the use of force against the Syrian government troops.
“I never heard from him [Secretary of state John Kerry], at least when he talks to me, never heard from him, that here [in Syria] have a military solution,” Lavrov said.
He recalled that the United States was among the countries — participants of the International Syrian support group, which opposed the use of force to resolve the conflict in the country.
