The Russian Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations, Dmitry Polyanskiy, said in a Thursday statement at the UN Security Council meeting that “every time the Syrian forces gain advantage on the ground and start to push terrorists”, Western countries “calls to stop armed action”.
“Our Western colleagues amplify their moans and calls to stop armed action, as if forgetting about our shared decisions to fight terrorism in an uncompromising manner. Then, as you could see today, terrorists become innocent babies… Consensus in favor of a new peaceful Syria owned by the Syrian people rather than Western protégés and mercenaries is already in place. Terrorists and those who support them are not the ones to hold the initiative”, Polyanskiy stressed.
The UK Political Coordinator to the United Nations, Stephen Hickey, claimed earlier on Thursday during the UNSC meeting that “there remain more babies than terrorists in Idlib”.
