Lavrov says reports are ‘dirty leaks’
Dmitry Solovyov, Reuters, Apr 1 2016
Sergei Lavrov on Friday dismissed as “dirty leaks” reports on an alleged agreement between Russia and Pindostan on the future of Assad, telling a Moscow presser:
The esteemed United Snakes cannot publicly call into question this formula, that only the people of Syria decide all the questions about the future of Syria, and in these dirty leaks which distort reality we obviously see Faschingstein’s inability to force some of its erstwhile vassals in the region and in Europe, (who want) to give the Syrian people a sovereign right to decide their destiny as well as who will be their leader.
Al-Hayat reported on Thursday that Jackass Kerry had told several Arab countries that Russia and Pindostan had reached an understanding on the future of Syria’s peace process, including Assad’s departure to another country at some unspecified stage. The Kremlin said (at the time,presumably) that the report was untrue.
