KAZAN, May 27. /TASS/. Moscow hopes for closer cooperation with Washington on coordinating steps on liberating Syria’s Raqqa, 100 miles east of Aleppo, Russian presidential special envoy for the Middle East and Africa, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told TASS on Friday.
"The contacts at the level of foreign ministers and defense ministers are of course taking place," Bogdanov said. "We hold these contacts every day and that’s why of course there is the exchange of information and the discussion on how the situation develops, how the ceasefire regime is maintained and violations are registered."
The diplomat said the instances of ceasefire violations in Syria have decreased. "They still take place, but they are fewer than earlier," Bogdanov said. "But of course we expect to have close cooperation on coordinating steps on liberating Syria," he stressed.
