MOSCOW (Sputnik) — White House spokesman Josh Earnest said at a press briefing Monday that the public would be informed concerning sanctions targeting Syria and Russia "only after that decision has been made and those penalties have been imposed."
"Of course, in general, imposing sanctions in the context of Syrian affairs evokes deep misunderstanding, especially among those who know the reality of the situation in Syria, the real situation related to the implementation of commitments set out in Russian-US agreements," Peskov told reporters.
On Tuesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry released the full text of the Russia-US deal on Syria as Washington failed to meet its obligations, while calling on Moscow not to make the agreement public.
Commenting on the release of the document, the foreign ministry said that it had proposed to make the document public, however, Washington refused to do so. The move caused "some questions about whether the US is sincere or not."
