Moscow: Russia is puzzled by US President Barack Obama`s suggestion that Moscow was not cooperating with an international investigation into what downed a Malaysian Airline`s jet earlier this month, the Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday.
"The words of US President B Obama that Russia is not cooperating with an international investigation into the catastrophe of the Malaysian Boeing cause confusion," the ministry said in a statement.
Obama has said Russia has a direct responsibility to compel pro-Russian separatists to cooperate with the investigation and that the burden is now on Moscow to force pro-Russian separatists to stop blocking the investigation.
