Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, Moscow, December 7, 2017
The Kremlin assured Wednesday „not to participate in the twitto-diplomacy“ and be in favor of „serious approaches“ after a series of tweets by Donald Trump on Russia, summoned in particular to „be ready“ for US strikes in Syria .
„We do not participate in the twitto-diplomacy, we are in favor of serious approaches,“ said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, quoted by Russian agencies asking him to comment on the latest messages from the US president.
„We still believe that it is important not to take actions that could harm an already fragile situation,“ he added.
„We are convinced that the use of chemical weapons in Douma (city of Eastern Ghouta in Syria, Ed) has been invented, and can not be used as a pretext to use force,“ he warned. .
Earlier Wednesday, Peskov warned against any act in Syria that could „destabilize the already fragile situation in the region,“ after threats of Western strikes against the regime in Damascus, accused of being responsible for an attack chemical.
Donald Trump warned Russia, ally of Bashar al-Assad, that missiles would be launched on Syria after the alleged chemical attack attributed to the Syrian regime.
„Russia swears to shoot down any missile fired on Syria, let Russia be ready, because they are coming, beautiful, new and ’smart‘! You should not associate with an animal that kills with gas, which kills its people and likes that, „wrote Trump in a tweet.
On Tuesday, the Russian ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zassypkin had been threatened on the Al-Manar chain, based in Lebanon and managed by Hezbollah: „In case of American strike (…) the missiles will be destroyed, as well as the equipment from where they were launched „.
