Ryabkov: Russia received no notification of terminating Russian-US agreement on Syria

Moscow, SANA – Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said that Russia received no notification from the United States on terminating the Russian-US agreement on Syria.

In an interview given to Sputnik news agency, Ryabkov said that the aforementioned agreement can be resumed, and that new touches can be added to it if necessary, but the real question is whether Washington is prepared for a diplomatic solution or not.

He said that if the US exits the agreement, it would be a big strategic mistake, noting that the United States has been employing a very narrow-minded policy regarding Syria, and if there’s a decision in Washington to exploit the Syrian issue for personal gains, then Russia will not play along.

Ryabkov stressed that Russia suggests that the Americans should cooperate with Russia and work with those who actually understand what is happening and are capable of delivering aid and fighting terrorist groups.
