Reported by Reuters on Wednesday (11/07/2018), it was delivered by Russian Defense Minister, Sergei Shoigu in a press release to the media.

He said, “It’s not just the Russians who do not get a clear strategy from the US in Syria.

He also added that if US actions so far in Syria is a spontaneous act and can not be said as a strategy for Syria.

“As US lawmakers and experts have called on the government to clarify its strategy for Syria, our country is not the only one who does not get it.If there are some groundwork for the actions of our American counterparts in Syria, it is too contradictory to be called a strategy, said Shoigu.

He considered if the US has lost its strategy. From the beginning, the US promised to destroy ISIS terrorist groups. But today, the US is more worried about Iran’s entry into Syria.

“I want to remind that at first it was about defeating ISIS, then about preventing the re-emergence of ISIS and now a statement is being made about the need to maintain a military presence in Syria to prevent Iranian influence,” he continued.
