MOSCOW, December 25. /TASS/. Russia is ready to share coordinates of facilities of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization and waits the same in response from its partners, Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the Russian General Staff Lt. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy said on Friday.
"We are ready to provide to our partners the coordinates of ISIL [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant - former name of IS] facilities and expect similar information from them on infrastructure of terrorist organizations," Rudskoy said.
He expressed hope that "representatives of the international coalition will consider the information provided by the Defense Ministry and take measures to destroy terrorists’ facilities." "One should understand that Syria is being looted, and revenue from smuggling any products goes to ISIL. Any country participating in this illegal business is an accomplice of international terrorism," Rudskoy stressed.
The Russian Defense Ministry repeatedly stated that it is ready to exchange information on militants with foreign partners. In particular, in mid-December General Staff head Valery Gerasimov told a briefing with foreign military attaches that Moscow "is ready to establish contacts on the Syrian problem with any country."
