WASHINGTON, April 14. (TASS) - Actions by the United States and its allies in Syria would entail consequences for which they would have to bear responsibility, Russia’s ambassador in Washington Anatoly Antonov said in a statement on Saturday.
Statement by the Ambassador of Russia to the USA Anatoly Antonov on the strikes on Syria
The worst apprehensions have come true. Our warnings have been left unheard.
A pre-designed scenario is being implemented. Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.
All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris.
Insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible.
The U.S. – the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons – has no moral right to blame other countries.
