YEREVAN, July 4 /TASS/. Moscow will continue military coordination with the United States in Syria with an aim to disengage Syrian opposition units from terrorists, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday.
"Our military communicate daily both during video conferences between the Hmeymim air base and US representatives in Amman, Jordan, and within the framework of the Geneva-based Russia-US truce monitoring center for Syria," the Russian minister said. "Very concrete issues linked to the delivery of air strikes at terrorist-held positions are discussed," Lavrov added.
"We are actively using these mechanisms to make our American partners to live up to a promise made a long time ago to disengage the opposition forces and separate the units cooperating with the US coalition from the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist groups [both banned in Russia - TASS]," the Russian foreign minister said.
"We are concerned that this disengagement [between the opposition and terrorists] has not taken place everywhere, including near Aleppo," Lavrov said.
"We will continue developing this coordination in hope of achieving concrete results," the Russian foreign minister stressed.
