MOSCOW, December 22. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has stressed that there is no alternative to launching United Nations-brokered intra-Syrian talks and continuing efforts against the Islamic State and other extremist groups in Syria, the Kremlin press service said on Tuesday after Putin’s telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
