U.S. Denies Transferring Weapons to Syrian Rebels

U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland rejected on Thursday Russia's accusations that the American government has assisted in delivering weapons to the rebel forces in Syria.

"This notion that we are coordinating the military assistance of other countries is ludicrous," she said. The comments came in response to a statement by the Russian Foreign Ministry, which said that “the U.S. coordinates and provides logistical assistance in such deliveries.”
