MFA of the Russian Federation: in the fight against IS, consolidation with Syria and Iraq is necessary

To combat the IS, it is necessary to unite with all partners and, above all, with the authorities of Syria and Iraq, said Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov. Reports about it RIA News with reference to the newspaper "Kommersant".

“The grouping" The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant "(ISIL), as well as terrorism in the Middle East as a whole, is our common threat, it is a threat for the entire world community. We must work in a consolidated manner with all our partners, first of all, of course, with the states of this region — governments in both Iraq and Syria. ”- said the diplomat.

When asked if the IS is a danger to Russia, he answered in the affirmative.

“People from many countries, 70 or 80, are fighting there. All concerned that these people go there and come back from there. They receive training there, acquire skills, and therefore pose an exceptional threat to the national security of their countries. At the same time, they have passports, in particular, of Western countries, which gives them the opportunity to move around the world without visas and additional checks. It is very dangerous"- said the deputy minister. According to him, dozens of Russian citizens can fight on the side of the IG.

Meanwhile, Washington considers it unlikely that Russia will participate in the operation conducted by the coalition in the Middle East, since Moscow insists on consulting with the Syrian government and coordinating military actions with the UN.

"The main obstacle to the participation of the Russian Federation (in the international coalition under the leadership of the United States) is the position of Moscow that an operation against Syria’s IG can be carried out only with the consent of the Syrian government or through the UN, which we cannot accept", A senior source at the White House told Reuters.

However, according to the interlocutor, the United States is still considering the possibility of interaction with the Russian Federation on this issue, since Russia is "a key player in Syria, Iraq, and it will inevitably be involved in any campaign in the Middle East."

Earlier, Sergei Lavrov said that Russia "is ready to support the Iraqi authorities in the fight against the militants of the IG." He later clarified that "any ground operation to combat terrorists in Syria, not agreed in the UN Security Council and conducted without consultation with the Syrian government, will be aggression."

    The most logical conclusion ... And perhaps it is worth adding that "with all the countries of that region," including Iran. And how without it? After all, IS is a threat primarily to them.

      Congratulations to all "democratic" European nations advocating the Maidan in Ukraine, now you will also pay for Eurobonds for Kiev! wassat

      The European Union will act as a guarantor of the repayment of Russian debt to Russia in the amount of 3 billion dollars, the German publication Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten reports. It is not surprising that Kiev agreed to these conditions, because the Kremlin can at any time demand from the Ukrainian government early repayment of Eurobonds in connection with the expired insolvency period, which would cause a state default in the country.

      Ukraine tried to get away from paying debt. So, the Ukrainian SBU opened a criminal case against former Finance Minister Yuriy Kolobov, accusing him of exceeding official powers and violating budget laws when selling Eurobonds. The publication writes that the political background of this investigation is obvious.

      Ukraine has also not been paying gas bills for several months, the author adds. For this reason, Moscow stopped deliveries. And this is normal practice, because all state gas companies do this in respect of non-compliance debtors.

      Before the onset of winter, the government in Kiev must find a way out of the situation, since the reserve reserves of gas are not enough and the country can plunge into chaos. At the same time, Russia never gave reason to doubt that it was ready to resume gas supplies to Ukraine. And it can hardly be reproached for not intending to supply gas for free.

      And who said that Russia should pay for this European circus in Ukraine? laughing

        Good afternoon! I will try to answer both. Puppets planted by Russia have already been. The question is whether they are needed? Moreover, as history shows, one should not expect anything good for Russia from this type of relationship.
        They will climb to us even faster if we are flattery in their affairs. Moreover, the creators of this problem have seriously taken care of this problem. Why should we stop the United States and its allies from throwing hundreds of millions of dollars into trying to curb unbridled people? The Western world is consolidating against Russia, so why help them solve their problems?

        I don’t see the need to help someone who fell into a puddle, if before that he treated me rudely ...

    in short, you can’t do without a land operation. The mattresses will not achieve anything by bombing. Only who will fight for them?! The Kurds and the Syrian opposition are too weak. The Iraqi army is too little at the moment. And the rest of the Persian Gulf countries will not ruin their troops for the sake of American ambitions.

    First of all, it is necessary that the countries sponsoring terrorists, such as the United States, Israel, the EU countries, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, etc., stop helping them, otherwise they can fight with one hand and allocate money to these bandits with the other, for example, to fight the Syrian "mode".

    so if WE in the krain cannot show the will, and who is stopping us from using the article "un - like monkeys obama, my uncles beat me and their ears are teasing," and just SILENT TO FAST!
    here is YOU WILL and DECISION!
    Here is the PARTNERS CUTTING relief of the stomach, and then stagnation and constipation of the brain poisoned them.
    here is an opportunity for the internal political "gingerbread food" to think that for labor camps, who you are a multimillionaire, a pissy and a gingerbread eater is a shit.
    for that next time the chocks will know that "URUSS RUSSIA does not speak well, otherwise the white AGON will come"

      You are clearly not one of the neighbors of those who died in the explosion of residential buildings on Guryevsky passage ...
      I wish you and your family never to be on the "penny" when someone decides to silently fry.

    Meanwhile, Washington considers Russia's participation in the operation carried out by the coalition in the Middle East unlikely, as Moscow insists on consultations with the Syrian government and coordination of military operations with the UN.

    This means that Russia does not "merge" Syria, as many thought ... We continue to provide her with political support. Not everything is clear with the S-300, which Syria allegedly refused ... They would be very appropriate there ... Although, it is possible that the Russian Federation simply insured itself just in such a case that mattress mats would not have a reason for another provocation with the shooting down of their attack aircraft by the "criminal regime of Assad ...", which they may well stir up .... And now it is more complicated .... Syria (officially) does not have high-altitude air defense systems ....

    This is not our war. Whoever gave birth to IS, let him deal with him. It was still not enough for our heads to be cut there. They will beat - we will cry. and run up, I think, too much ...

    Amers always have the same thing. How to dirty, so alone, and how to clean, so everyone. It is clearly said that everything is through the UN and to help warring legitimate governments. Is there something to burn on their ass for clarity?

    It is necessary to support Iran and Syria in the fight against ISIS, to oust them from the occupied territory, to ensure tight border control, but no more. Let the United States and its allies get stuck in the struggle, the more the group aims to capture Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, and this is the end of the world petrodollar, whoever advocates a multipolar world will benefit.

    "I gave birth to you, and I will kill you" - this applies, first of all, to the United States. This is their "merit" in the birth of ISIS.
    This is not our war, we have a lot of our problems. But uprooting all the creeps of Islamism in their own country is necessary. Not a single participant who returned after participating in the IS forces should remain at large.

    It is necessary to unite with Syria, first of all - to supply it with a modern air defense system in order to immediately discourage even the idea of ​​twitching towards Syria. And it is possible, like mattress toppers, to start air support for the "coalition".
