Rogozin hopes London's rejection of military operation in Syria will cool some 'hotheads' (Part 2)
VLADIVOSTOK. Aug 30 (Interfax) - The decision of the British parliament, which rejected a government decision on the necessity to respond to the crisis in Syria with force, is unlikely to give the United States confidence, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said.
"I can say in this situation on the basis of the global experience of work in Brussels that the U.S. is unlikely to feel additional confidence, it will feel less confidence: no one wants to be alone in the situation, which is quite dubious and which is more like speculation organized on the topic of chemical weapons," Rogozin told reporters.
Rogozin said he hoped that the decision of the British parliament would cool some 'hotheads.'
"Lack of support in NATO, London's decision and many other things in general do not encourage a military operation in Syria. No one wants to be in isolation, even such great power as the U.S.," Rogozin said.
The UK has always been a loyal ally to the U.S. in all operations of this kind, so the current decision of the British parliamentarians is an important factor, which will be taken into account, Rogozin said.
