MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The United States' stance on terrorism and unwillingness to condemn the actions of the Islamic State (also known as Daesh, banned in Russia) raises questions in Moscow, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Department for Non-Proliferation and Arms Control said Tuesday.

"Over the past two years, the IS terrorist group has used chemical weapons dozens of times in Syria and Iraq. But during these two years, the UN Security Council has never addressed this issue, though we repeatedly tried to initiate it. Our American partners have blocked all attempts to condemn IS actions. This looks very ambiguous and raises serious questions," Mikhail Ulyanov told RIA Novosti.
