MOSCOW, September 22. /TASS/. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has redirected questions on alleged presence of Russia aircraft in Syria to the Defense Ministry.
"We have already explained absolutely everything here - all the answers have been given to similar questions. Of course, some additional questions of the kind should be addressed to the Defense Ministry," Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters, responding to a request to comment on the foreign media allegations about the appearance of Russian aircraft in Syria.
According to the Kremlin official, the Defense Ministry gives "laconic answers" to the corresponding media questions. "And why should we expand, if they give laconic answers to these questions?" Peskov said.
According to the spokesman, Russia and Israel have agreed to establish a channel on exchanging information on the situation in Syria.
"As the situation in Syria continues to be extremely tense and it mostly tends to deteriorate, in this case, due to partnership relations between Russia and Israel, we considered it necessary to establish a channel on exchanging information in such a sensitive sphere," Peskov said.
The issue was discussed at the talks between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Monday, he said.
At the talks, the sides "discussed the need for a greater exchange of information and information coordination between Russia and Israel," Peskov said.
"Here it is not important at all who is on the site," Peskov said when speaking about Russia’s instructors in Syria.
The sides also focused on bilateral relations, the current situation, trade and economic cooperation, investment and also on developing technologies. "This was discussed in detail already in a broader format."
