MOSCOW, October 26 /TASS/. Moscow maintains contacts with representatives of Free Syrian Army, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said on Monday when asked when the group’s representatives could be expected to come to Moscow.
"They are here all the time. They are various people, who come and go. But everybody says that they are representatives of Free Syrian Army," Bogdanov said.
Bogdanov who met representatives of several Syrian parties last week stressed the need to mobilize and consolidate the potential for more effective struggle against the Islamic State (IS). "We have always said that everybody who is fighting terrorists on the ground should participate in a broad anti-terror front. It is the Syrian army and Kurdish self-defense detachments, the Free Syrian Army and other patriotic opposition armed groups," the deputy foreign minister said.
