President Barack Obama said the US will continue to support the Syrian opposition, reports RIA «News».


He stated this during a press conference.


«We will continue to support them», — said Obama.


According to the American leader, Vladimir Putin doesn’t distinguish between the «Islamic State» (banned in Russia — «Gazeta.Ru» note) militants and the Syrian opposition, with which Obama didn’t agree.


«We will not cooperate with the Russian campaign only for trying to destroy anyone who bothered to Assad’s behavior and inspires a disgust <…> We deny Russia’s theory that everyone who is against Assad is a terrorist. We think that this theory is losing, it will lead (Russia) into a quagmire», — said Obama.
