Countries taking part in the Syrian crisis settlement should look for a compromise, instead of threatening to launch a ground operation in the country, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said, commenting on a recent statement by US Secretary of State John Kerry.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier this week, Kerry said that if Russia and Iran do not help the US in Syria, there was a possibility of sending ground forces in Syria.

“These are futile words, he should not have said that for a simple reason: if all he wants is a protracted war, he can carry out ground operations and anything else. But don’t try to frighten anyone,” Medvedev told the Euronews television, referring to Kerry’s statement.
