Russian FM: Washington must stop 'playing with fire' in Syria

Russian FM: Washington must stop 'playing with fire' in Syria

Russia has backed Syria's fight against terror since late 2015 when Russian air force and troops arrived in the Arab country at an official request of Damascus to help the government fight against Daesh and other Takfiri militants.

The coalition warned the Russian military and proceeded to strike the formation, killing up to 100 people.

Russian Federation conceded Tuesday that "dozens" of its citizens were injured and an unspecified number were killed in a USA strike in Syria earlier this month, though it insisted its military was not involved in the clash.

"I understand that the Russian government now is saying that some of their non-military forces, contractors, were involved in that still unexplained attack", Mattis said Saturday while flying back to Washington after a weeklong tour of Europe. "But they took direction from someone". Was it local directions?

Whether it is from external sources? "Don't ask me. I don't know". "But I doubt that 257 people just decided themselves suddenly to cross the river into enemy territory, to start the firing position (the Syrian democratic forces) and move her tanks" - said the Minister of defense.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov issued a warning to Washington on Monday morning in light of an armed clash between Russian mercenaries and rebels, which received air support from the U.S., earlier this month near Deir ez-Zor.

The ministry repeated that the fighters had traveled to Syria "on their own volition and for various purposes".

Under the deal, the company would capture and secure oil and gas infrastructure in Syria in exchange for a 25 percent share in future resource production.
