Kremlin will not tolerate situation with diplomatic property in US


14.07.2017

The Presidential Administration of RussiaThere can be no question about US preconditions for the return of Russia's diplomatic property since they run contrary to international law, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told, RIA Novosti reports.

Let us remind, today the Deputy assistant to US President has stated that the release of two diplomatic compounds is to be connected with the developments of the situation in Syria, in particular regarding ceasefire agreement observation.

Dmitry Peskov has suggested that the statement might not be properly formulated.

Let us remember, former US President Barack Obama has ordered seizure of two Russian diplomatic compounds and expelled 35 Russian diplomats in December 2016, just before the New Year celebrations.

Back in December, Russian President Vladimir Putin decided not to exacerbate the situation, and has not responded to sanctions imposed. Although, this issue was not resolved during G20 summit meeting in Hamburg.

Responding to this, Russian officials went on to say that Russia was preparing a response to the seizure.

Russian Foreign Ministry has commented that Moscow is ready to take the reciprocal steps. This situation is going to be discussed at the Russian and American diplomats' meeting that will take place in a few days in Saint Petersburg.
