MOSCOW - Russia hit back at US criticism of its stance on the conflict in Syria on Friday, saying Washington's suggestion that Moscow should "pay a price" for helping keep President Bashar Assad in power was "incorrect."

Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told Interfax news agency that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's statement went against the strategy for ending the bloodshed in Syria that was agreed by world powers last Saturday in Geneva.
