The US is trying to cover up its own failure to force armed groups in Syria to de-escalate violence as it blames Russia and Iran for ongoing hostilities in Eastern Ghouta, the Russian foreign minister has said.

“Our Western partners, who don’t hide the close contacts they have with in Eastern Ghouta, have failed in their commitment under the UNSC Resolution 2401, which was to influence their proteges, rein them in, and make them stop shelling residential areas . Our Western colleagues led by the US have failed to do that,” the Russian minister said on Tuesday.

He added that the US is now proposing a new draft resolution, which would be limited to the situation in Eastern Ghouta. It would also protect UN-designated terrorists – like the group formerly known as Al-Nusra Front, which Russia says is playing the lead role in this area – and give the militants time to regroup.

“Ms Haley states that the US is a peaceful nation that can at any moment attack the forces of the Syrian government. I have no regular terms left to describe this,” said Lavrov. “A new strike would have very serious consequences. Ms Haley should realize that abusing a microphone with irresponsible statements at the UN Security Council is one thing, but the communications between American and Russian militaries is another thing, which details what is allowed and what is not.”
