    Washington is conducting double-standard policies by refusing to fight jointly with Moscow against al-Nusra Front terrorists in Syria, Deputy Secretary of Russia's Security Council Yevgeny Lukyanov said Monday.

    GROZNY (Sputnik) — Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said last Friday that Moscow had proposed to Washington to conduct joint airstrikes against al-Nusra Front and other terrorist groups refusing to respect ceasefire in Syria. Washington has so far rejected Moscow's proposal.

    "They have received our proposal but refused it…It is their position," Lukyanov said ahead of a high-level international security meeting in southern Russia.

    According to Lukyanov, US actions in relation to international terrorists in Syria attest to "rather basic" double-standard policies regularly conducted by Washington.
