In the Federation Council responded to the invitation to join the Western coalition in Syria

Foreign Minister of Britain, Boris Johnson has lost touch with reality, if urges Moscow to join the fight against banned terrorist organization “Islamic state”. About it “RIA Novosti” said the head of the international Committee of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev.

According to him, the British Minister “apparently does not report to reports from Syria,” otherwise “he would know that Russia is the only or one of very few countries in the world that really help the country to cope with terrorist trouble.”

“Anyway, the proclamation hangs in the air and remains on the conscience of the Minister who lost, apparently, a connection with reality — at least in the middle East,” — said Kosachev.

First Deputy head of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich, in turn, stressed that Russia should join the Western coalition in Syria, and Vice versa.

“I don’t think joining the Western coalition, which only simulates the fight against “Islamic state”, is the right choice. As mentioned, however, quite another matter, an action hero of Andrei Mironov in “Diamond hand”, you’ll better come to us,” Senator wrote on his page on the social network Facebook.

Earlier, the Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain, Boris Johnson has invited Russia to join the international coalition led by the US, leading the fight against “Islamic state”. In an article published by the newspaper the Telegraph, he stressed that Russia “still has time to be on the right side.” Johnson also warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad that the U.S. is ready for new strikes. “America struck a blow and can, of course, to do it again,” he writes. It is vital that Russian people could understand the “horrific nature of the regime that they support,” said Johnson.

USA launched a missile attack on the airbase from government forces in the Syrian province of HOMS on April 7. The US President Donald trump said that the strike was a response to a chemical attack in Idlib province, the responsibility for which the US and other Western countries impose on Bashar al-Assad.
