Russia regrets US postponing meeting on Syria
MOSCOW – Russia on Tuesday said it regretted a decision by the United States to shelve a meeting on the Syria crisis this week, as expectations mount of military action against the Damascus regime.
“It arouses regret that our partners decided to cancel the bilateral meeting” involving senior diplomats from both sides in The Hague, Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov wrote on Twitter, adding such talks would have been particularly useful at a time “when military action is hanging over this country”.
