    According to Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Moscow believes statements made by British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond on Russia and Iran’s alleged interference in settling the Syrian crisis to be “a dangerous gambit”.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Moscow believes statements made by British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond on Russia and Iran’s alleged interference in settling the Syrian crisis to be “a dangerous gambit,” Russia’s Govorit Moskva radio station quoted Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova as saying Tuesday.

    Hammond earlier said that Russia’s actions in Syria were strengthening the positions of the Daesh, which is prohibited in numerous countries including Russia and the United States, because Russia says it wants to destroy the Daesh, but is not bombing the Daesh and bombing the moderate opposition.

    Zakharova said this was “a dangerous gambit of misinformation.”
