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.
The sides "agreed to maintain active dialogue at various levels to further coordinate their anti-terrorist efforts," the press service said, adding that the conversation had been initiated by the Israeli side.
"In the context of the Palestinian-Israeli settlement, the Russian president stressed the importance of practical steps towards de-escalation of the situation," the Kremlin said.
The leaders also exchanged opinions on the development of the Russian-Israeli cooperation.
