MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. Russia and the United States are unanimous in their understanding of the need to fight international terrorism and the Islamic State terrorist organization, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
The presidential spokesman thus commented on the preparation of a summit meeting between the Russian and US leaders.
"Each side has certain understanding and a certain approach to the fields, in which we should interact. There is common understanding that undoubtedly cooperation in the fight against terrorism and the Islamic State can and must be a priority," the Kremlin spokesman said.
According to Peskov, "other details will be worked out after the format [of a meeting] is clear."
"I have nothing to tell you yet, there have been no specific decisions," he said when asked if preparations were underway for such meeting. "Preparations will begin after we define the format and date [of the meeting]," the Russian presidential spokesman added.
