MOSCOW, October 1. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said he hopes Moscow and Washington will set up a mechanism for exchanging information on Syria.
"This, however, does not mean we should take into account the information of this type [Western media reports]," Putin noted.
"Precisely for this purpose, we are developing contacts between our special services - Russian special services and US special services, between defense ministries," the president said at the session of Presidential Council on Development of Civil Society and Human Rights. "The work is underway. I hope that it will result in the creation of a constantly operating mechanism," Putin said.
"Another mechanism - international - has already been created by us in Baghdad, in which several countries participate," he added.
