U.S. and Germany warned Russia on the inadmissibility of supply guns and military equipment, namely, advanced air defense systems, the regime of President Bashar al-Assad (Bashar al-Assad), which may change the military balance in the region, reports CBSnews May 31.
Municipal Secretary of John Kerry (John Kerry) and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Germany Guido Westerwelle (Guido Westerwelle) stated that the transfer of the S-300 Syrian civilians prolong the war in the country and pose a danger of a transitional government, also pose a danger to the strategic interests of Israel.
«Deliveries of S-300 will harm the convening of the International Conference on Syria. We ask Russia not to disturb the balance of power in the region toward Israel. Tool that comes to the Assad regime, both new and old on contracts, very bad impact on stability in the region. , We hope that our homeland would refrain from supplying weapons in the interest of the International Conference, «Kerry said during his meeting with German Foreign Minister (pictured). Kerry also warned that the introduction of chemical weapons is a «red line» for the administration of Barack Obama (Barack Obama). In turn, Westerwelle urged Russia «not to spoil the conference», which was scheduled in June (Geneva), but has been postponed until July.
Russian bureaucrats have stated that they will deliver the S-300 as part of the existing contract.
