Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister said that CIA Director John Brennan promised during his February visit to Moscow to facilitate the separation of Syria’s ‘moderate opposition’ from the terrorists as soon as possible, but he has failed to honor his promise.

Brennan promised during his February visit to Moscow to facilitate the separation of Syria’s ‘moderate opposition’ from the terrorists as soon as possible, but he has failed to honor his promise, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said Friday.

“Washington is clearly not eager to fight the Nusra Front terrorists, and is attempting to shield this al-Qaeda unit with illegal militant groups, which Washington calls ‘moderate,’ although in reality many of those groups have refused to honor Russia-US ceasefire agreements and de-facto joined the raging radicals,” Ryabkov told RIA Novosti.
