Moscow, SANA – Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov affirmed on Thursday that Russia supports the idea of coordinating efforts with US to combat terrorism in Syria.
In a press statement to Sputnik, Peskov said Russia has repeatedly called to establish a broad coalition to combat terrorism in Syria and coordinate joint efforts in this regard.
He however declined to comment on media reports of the United States planning to offer stepped up anti-terrorist cooperation with Russia in Syria.
“I cannot yet comment on that because we are talking about newspaper reports. There will be contacts between the State Secretary and the President Vladimir Putin today, while main talks will be held with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov,” Peskov told reporters.
The Washington Post Newspaper cited earlier a draft proposal on military cooperation between Russia and the United States in Syria.
