    The US has no reason not to recognize the parliamentary elections in Syria.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The United States has no reason not to recognize the parliamentary elections in Syria that are currently underway in the country, Russian Foreign Affairs Committee head Alexei Pushkov said Wednesday.

    “There are no reasons not to recognize the results of the elections,” Pushkov said during a press conference in Moscow.

    Earlier, the US State Department said Washington does not see the elections in Syria as being legitimate because they do not reflect the will of the Syrian people.

    “The US statement in regard to the will of the people has no reasoning whatsoever,” Pushkov added.
