Ex-CIA Chief's Call to 'Kill Russians, Iranians' in Syria
She said that such comments undermine all the progress due to Russian and US' efforts on the resolution of the Syrian crisis.
"These statements are not just inhumane, they are made in Daesh-style," Zakharova said.
She also said that Morell's statement shocked not only Moscow, but the US State Department as well.
Syrian Crisis Settlement
The Syrian crisis settlement is in deadlock due to the inability of Washington to separate moderates and terrorists, Zakharova said.
The joint work by Russia and the US on the Syrian reconciliation has entered a "pivotal phase."
Responding to queries on US media reports of a possible breakdown of the agreements reached between the countries, the spokeswoman stressed that Russian-US military and diplomatic work is still underway.
“Of course, if someone wants to disrupt this work, then this is unfortunately a question of their biases,” Zakharova said, noting that Moscow “wants and does everything possible for these daily negotiations to conclude successfully.”
She said that Ankara and Moscow are constructively working on the Syrian crisis settlement.
"Existing differences cannot be resolved in one day, because these are significant disagreements, substantial issues. But work on it is underway and we value it as constructive," Zakharova reiterated.
Moscow-Ankara relations improved since the downing of a Russian jet by Turkey last fall following an apology and a reconciliatory visit to St. Petersburg by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan this summer.
Strike on MSF Hospital in Yemen
The bombing killed an MSF aid worker and 13 patients on Monday and wounded more than 20 in the fourth attack on its medical facility since the start of the year, the charity said.
"We reiterate that the use of military force against civilians and civilian objects is totally unacceptable. We urge to carry out a thorough investigation of such violations of international humanitarian law, to take comprehensive measures to prevent them in the future," Zakharova said at a weekly briefing.
She reaffirmed Moscow’s principled position for the warring parties in the Yemeni conflict to disengage from the "logic of war" and achieve a sustainable conflict resolution.
