MOSCOW, October 23. /TASS/. President Vladimir Putin has familiarized himself with data on Islamic State positions in Syria supplied by former US President Jimmy Carter, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, noting that the information had been supplied through open channels as it was not of military nature.

Confirming that such data had been sent, he said military information could be passed only through closed military channels. Peskov did not give the details of this information.

Earlier, Jimmy Carter offered to Russia maps showing positions of the Islamic State that had been drafted by his expert center. They were handed over through the Russian Embassy to the United States.

Russian diplomats stated that the maps were not classified information, as most of them could be found on the cartercenter.org website.

"However, we are very grateful for this gesture of the former US president, who is obviously sincerely seeking united effort in fight against terrorism and is concerned about the fate of the Syrian people," embassy sources said.
