MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. The joint Russian-US fight against the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda terrorist organizations (outlawed in Russia) could be the basis for restoring relations between the two countries, Russian Ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak, told the Rossiya 24 TV channel on Friday.
"The new accents that we can hear in remarks of the US president and his entourage indicate that the priority (in combatting terrorism) is ISIL and Al-Qaeda. We have the same priority. Frankly speaking, I do have hope regarding this issue. If there is serious cooperation, we can count on the first elements of restoring confidence," he said.
