Russia is ready to act as a guarantor of an agreement between the Taliban and the US on Afghanistan, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova stated during her weekly briefing in Moscow on Wednesday.
“Russian side confirms its readiness to act as a guarantor in the implementation of the mentioned agreement if it receives appropriate appeal from the parties that have concluded it... Еще,” said Zakharova.
Going on to discuss the Venezuelan crisis, the spokesperson said opposition leader Juan Guaido’s decision to form his own government was “another dangerous attempt to legitimise dual power, and create a pseudo-legal reality that leads to further polarisation of Venezuelan society.”
She went on to say that many of Guaido’s ministers “have long been working for organisations sponsored by American NGOs.”
During her briefing the spokesperson also criticised German government’s reaction to US attacks in Syria’s Idlib.
“It was everywhere in the press that Idlib was bombed by the US, and also the US stated it themselves, and after that the German government says that comprehensive information is not available.»
“Germany, as a member of international coalition, can request this information from Washington, if information given in press is not enough,” said Zakharova
The US bombed an array of targets in Idlib's de-escalation zone on Saturday, killing numerous civilians which threatens the truce across the province, the Russian Defence Ministry said.
The US Central Command (CENTCOM) said in a statement on Saturday that the strike targeted leaders of a group it calls al-Qaeda in Syria.
