MOSCOW, October 9. /TASS/. The topic of preventing incidents in Syria is discussed with the US-led coalition, Russian envoy to NATO Alexander Grushko said on Friday.
"I did not mean coordination in the fight against the Islamic State [terrorist organization], I meant the situation with possible incidents," Grushko said. "As [Russian] Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said, there is an agreement to resume the channel of communications with the [Turkish] General Staff, to establish strictures that would operate in the real time to prevent such situations from happening. For now, it became more concrete. This is one of the topics discussed by participants of the anti-ISIL [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant - former name of the Islamic State] because we are all fighting in the same place," Grushko explained.
NATO used an unintended incident with a Russian aircraft in the skies over Turkey as a pretext for lambasting Russia once again, even though Moscow has no hostile intentions against Ankara, Russia’s Ambassador to NATO added.
"The statements made by NATO said nothing about the coordination of efforts in the fight against Islamic State, they were used for new verbal attacks against Russia," he said.
