BELGRADE, December 13. /TASS/. Contacts with Turkey on Syria are aimed at coordinating steps and are intense, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday.
"We are working with all those who can have an impact on the situation on the ground one way or another," Lavrov said. "There are regional countries among them, first and foremost, Turkey. The Russian and Turkish presidents regularly communicate in person and over the phone, discuss the issues that are yet to be resolved to prevent the growing terror threat and thwart it in Syria, Iraq, and, of course, in other countries, because the Islamic State (IS) (terrorist group, outlawed in Russia - TASS) has sent out shoots throughout the region."
"During these contacts we have reached an agreement on cooperation between diplomatic missions, the military and intelligence services," the minister said. "We have a common understanding of the challenges facing the world community, such as counter-terrorism tasks and the tasks to preserve Syria’s territorial integrity and prevent its disintegration."
"I can assure you that our contacts with Turkey aimed at coordinating our steps in Syria are quite intense and regular," Lavrov added.
