MOSCOW, October 7. /TASS/. The Russian Defense Ministry said on Wednesday US proposals for coordinated efforts to fight Islamic State militants in Syria could be accepted.
Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said: "The Russian Defense Ministry has responded to a request from Pentagon and swiftly considered US proposals to coordinate actions to fight the Islamic State terrorist group in Syria. These proposals can be accepted for implementation in general," he said.
"We just need to specify some technical details that will be discussed today by representatives of the Russian Defense Ministry and the Pentagon at the expert level," Konashenkov added.
Russia’s aerospace forces launched pinpoint strikes against the Islamic State targets in Syria on September 30. The Russian air group in Syria comprises more than 50 warplanes and helicopters. According to the country’s defense ministry officials, air strikes are delivered at military hardware, communications centers, transport vehicles, munitions depots and other terrorist infrastructure facilities. The military operation is conducted at the request of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
