Russian Diplomatic Source: Bogdanov Made No Statements to Saudi Website
A Russian diplomatic source on Tuesday said that the Russian President's Special Envoy to the Middle East, Deputy Foreign Minister, Mikhail Bogdanov, made no statement to the Saudi Website al-Watan.
In a statement to Russia Today TV channel, the diplomatic source added that circulating the so-called interview of Bogdanov to al-Watan is "a new media provocation".
"I didn't speak to any newspaper inside or outside Russia," Bogdanov told Russia Today reporter by phone, adding that he is on a vacation.
He stressed that what was attributed to him regarding the destiny of the Syrian President is "complete nonsense".
The Russian Deputy Foreign Minister affirmed that he does not know any journalist at al-Watan newspaper who claimed to have called him, dismissing as baseless everything that was ascribed to him in the alleged interview.
