The United States said on Friday that it has expressed concerns to Russia and Cyprus about weapons shipments to Syria.
“We have called for all countries that continue to trade and supply weapons with Syria to stop. With regard to the ship, we have raised our concerns about this, both with Russia and with Cyprus, which was the last port of call for the ship. And we are continuing to seek clarification as to what went down here”, said State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland in a press briefing.
“Among the things that we might be seeking would be stronger efforts to control this kind of thing into Syria, because obviously we all have concerns that the Syrian regime is using it against its own people”, she added.
