That Moscow and Washington agreed to intensify bilateral contacts between the military of the United States and Russia in Syria, announced at a press conference in Geneva, Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov after 12 hours of talks with his U.S. counterpart John Kerry.
“Today we agreed to intensify bilateral contacts in the last few weeks somehow sagged, stopped. I mean the contacts between our representatives in Geneva, who until recently was, in fact, everyday as well as contacts between the leadership of the Russian base in Hamima and representatives of the American command, which are located in the Jordanian capital Amman,” Lavrov said (quoted by “Interfax”).
According to the Russian Minister, one of the problems in Syria is the establishment of the country coordination among the FSI Russian and US-led coalition. However, according to Lavrov, it is not.
“We are talking not about the fact that someone stopped to fly. We are talking about that aircraft, which operates in the Syrian sky, effectively fighting with ISIS, and “al-Nusra Dzhebhat” [both organizations recognized in Russia is prohibited],” said Lavrov.
“Our task is not to cease to fly certain participants of the conflict, but to those who fly, was bombed by terrorists. Until we have coordination in this matter is not established with our American partners, with the coalition that the US is headed, but this is one of the tasks that we solve, starting with the Moscow meeting,” he added.
