JERUSALEM, February 3. /TASS/. Russia is content with the level of cooperation with Israel over the military operation in Syria, Russia’s Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko said on Wednesday.
Answering a TASS question whether the fight against terrorism was on the table of her meeting with Israel’s parliamentary speaker Yuli-Yoel Edelstein, Matviyenko said, "We discussed the issue."
Last year during a visit of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Moscow an agreement was reached on coordination between Russia’s Aerospace Force and Israel’s Air Force, she recalled.
"We are satisfied how our mechanism has been tailored," the speaker of the Russian upper parliamentary house said.
Russia’s aviation grouping has been delivering air strikes against the Islamic State terrorist organization (outlawed in Russia) in Syria since September 30 at the request of Syria’s President Bashar Assad.
