MOSCOW, February 5. /TASS/. Coordination between Russia and Western allies could have been better in Syria if West’s efforts had really been directed at fighting terrorism, Russian State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin said on Friday.

"Western partners are making more active attempts to coordinate more closely with Russia in joint activities on Syrian territory," Naryshkin told RT TV channel.

"In my opinion, coordination and effectiveness of joint actions could have been even higher if intentions of the West had been truly sincere and really directed at defeating international terrorism together," the speaker noted.

On 30 September 2015 Russia’s Federation Council unanimously approved President Vladimir Putin’s request to launch a military operation in Syria against Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist groups. Russian Aerospace Defense Forces delivered first targeted airstrikes at militants’ positions on the same day. Since the start of the operation, Russian aviation made hundreds of sorties, destroyed dozens of ammunition depots, explosives production plants and command posts.
