MOSCOW, January 14. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Jordanian King Abdullah II have discussed issues of the Syrian settlement and spoken in support of UN efforts to hold intra-Syrian talks in Geneva in late January.
The Kremlin press service reported that in the telephone conversation, the sides underscored "the necessity to as soon as possible consolidate the actions of all interested states in the cause of countering the Islamic State and other extremist groups."
Putin noted the importance of preparation by the Jordanian side of a single list of terrorist organizations, the Kremlin said.
The Russian leader and Abdullah II agreed "to intensify the bilateral Russian-Jordanian work through various channels, including within the framework of the so-called ‘Amman mechanism’ aimed at further coordination of joint antiterrorism efforts."
According to UN statistics, fighting between Syrian government troops and militants has killed more than 200,000 people and displaced millions since its start in 2011.
