U.S. asks Greece to deny Russian flights to Syria
By Renee Maltezou, Tom Perry and Lidia Kelly ATHENS/BEIRUT/MOSCOW (Reuters) - The United States has asked Greece to deny Russia the use of its airspace for supply flights to Syria, a Greek official said on Monday, after Washington told Moscow it was deeply concerned by reports of a Russian military build up in Syria. Russian newswire RIA Novosti earlier said Greece had refused the U.S. request, adding that Russia was seeking permission to run the flights up to Sept. 24. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Moscow would not give any official reaction until there was a decision from Athens.
