LONDON, April 16. /Offset. TASS Igor Brovarnik/. The Minister of foreign Affairs of great Britain, Boris Johnson has invited Russia to join the Western coalition against the terrorist group “Islamic state” (IG, is prohibited in Russia). This is stated in his article, published Saturday in the Daily Telegraph newspaper.
According to the head of the foreign Ministry, Moscow could “join the coalition, which unites more than 60 countries, to fight against the “Daishev” (the Arabic name of the IG) and to preserve its strategic interests in Syria with the prospect of a more fruitful relationship with the President (of the USA Donald) trump.” At the same time, he assures, “the West will help to rebuild the country”.
According to Johnson, there is no doubt that an attack with weapons of mass destruction in the province of Idlib was attended by two aircraft, which “took off from the airbase, where they stored chemical weapons.”
“British scientists have studied the samples taken from (bodies and clothing) to victims of the attack. They (samples) confirmed the presence of sarin or similar (chemical) substances,” he says.
According to the Minister, Russia should contribute “a real ceasefire, to end the use of chemical weapons and barrel bombs, to achieve a political settlement that would free the Syrians” from power of President Bashar al-Assad.
“The Russians saved him. They are able to help to seek its care through a controlled transition, which will preserve the key institutions of the state and will bring the country a stable, pluralistic future,” says Johnson.
