The imminent liberation of the territory of Syria East of the Euphrates from terrorists, the Pentagon says most of its merit, not the merit of Russia. About it RIA Novosti said the representative of the U.S. Department of defense Eric Pahon.
“The Syrian regime, and Russia has not demonstrated a serious approach or commitment to defeat the “Islamic state” (IG, is prohibited in Russia). They carried out only a small part of the operations, and most of the territory liberated in Iraq and Syria, was freed thanks to the efforts of the global coalition and its partners,” he said.
According to him, the coalition led by the United States will continue action in Syria in support of local forces to complete the defeat of the terrorists and to stabilize the situation. “This will allow the Syrian refugees and internally displaced persons to return to their homes,” said Pachon.
Previously, the defense Ministry said that Syria hosted the first meeting of the delegates of the management Committee of the Eastern territories of the Euphrates, which invited the representative of the Russian forces. At the meeting it was stated that the Kurdish formations are ready to ensure security of Russian military on the Eastern Bank of the Euphrates in Syria. The representative of Russia announced that in the coming days this area will be liberated from the extremists.
