Russia Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova called on US envoy to the United Nations Samantha Power to visit Syria in order to observe how people live in war conditions and to learn the meaning of ‘shame’.
US envoy had stated that Zakharova should be ashamed of accusing Washington of cooperation with ISIL.
“Dear Samantha Power, in order to learn the meaning of word ‘shame’ I would advise you to visit Syria and meet people there,” Zakharova wrote in her Facebook account.
“Not with Nusra, nor with the moderate opposition, about delivery of humanitarian aid for which Washington is worried so much, not with those living in the West who are so concerned about the prosperous future for that country, but meet people, who live there, despite the fact that for almost six years already their country undergoes a bloody experiment, with an active involvement of Washington.”
The foreign ministry’s representative said she has been communicating Syrians, including representatives of the Syrian opposition, with orphans, who come to rest and receive rehabilitation treatment in Russia, with reporters. So that Power could also have experience of the kind, Zakharova invited her to visit Syria.
“Why not go together?” she said. “All at my expense. Sure, it is not a tour of the UN corridors for the miserable. That trip would be much more breath-taking. Do agree. No fears. Nobody will touch you if you are there with me. But for a possible chance, where yours “by a mistake” deliver a strike somewhere special. You will have things to remember. And, besides, will be able to learn what “shame” means.”
Zakharova also critically commented on Power’s statement the U.S. cannot support the ISIL, since its militants cut off heads of the U.S. citizens.
“To your words claiming the U.S. could not support those who cut off heads of the U.S. citizens, please find attached hereto a picture from Wikipedia “U.S. President Ronald Regan meets a delegation of Afghanistan’s mujahideen in the White House, 1983.”,” Zakharova wrote.
