Zakharova Slams US Calls to End Astana Talks on Syria

MOSCOW- Russia believes that the call by US Special Envoy to Syria James Jeffrey to "pull the plug" on the Russia-led Sochi and Astana talks on Syria is unprofessional and unconstructive, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters on Wednesday, according to Itar Tass.

"Such broad statements that if [progress on the Syrian constitutional committee is not achieved] by December, then that’s the end, are inappropriate here. For experts, this is a sign that those people who make these assessments are not professionals," Zakharova said. These statements play into the hands of those who oppose peaceful settlement and "these are additional arguments for the remaining extremists and militants."
