The Russian government confirmed yesterday that it sent a proposal to the U.S. military for cooperation on the subject of Syria refugees and de-mining the conflict areas so migrants could return. The only catch would be the United States would have to pay for it.

In the letter, the Russian chief of staff, General Valery Gerasimov, said Moscow was ready to discuss with Damascus safety guarantees for refugees stranded at Rukban, as well as creating conditions for their return home. “A proposal was also made to coordinate humanitarian de-mining, including in Raqqa, and other priority humanitarian issues for the urgent establishment of peaceful life in Syria,” the ministry said, reported Al Jazeera.

“The proposal argues that the Syrian regime lacks the equipment, fuel, other material, and funding needed to rebuild the country in order to accept refugee returns,” according to a US government memo, quoted Reuters.

The offer was reportedly rejected by Washington, citing US policy was only to support such efforts if there was a political solution to end Syria’s seven-year-old civil war.
