MOSCOW, September 21. /TASS/. Syria is prepared to cooperate with any country that will be fighting against terrorism not just verbally, but in reality, Syria’s Foreign Minister Walid Muallem, told Russia Today Arabic television news channel.
"We are prepared to coordinate action with any state that is sincere in its wish to fight with terrorism," he said. To prove the sincerity of intentions these countries should refrain from providing financial and military support for terrorists."
Muallem said the international community had not gone any further than declarations of intent.
"Have the neighboring countries complied with the UN Security Council’s resolution on struggle against terrorism? Not a single one has done that," he recalled.
In his opinion, the lack of coordination among the parties interested in the victory over terrorism has brought about a situation where US air strikes against militants’ positions have proved ineffective.
"The United States keeps dealing air strikes but it never reports the results," he said.
Muallem believes that the effectiveness of US operations will grow, if it coordinates them with those of the Syrian army - the sole force in the country that is capable of fighting the war with the terrorists on the ground.
He said Syria continued to regard Russia as a "strategic ally honest in its actions."
"Moscow acts in strict compliance with international law, respect for my country’s sovereignty and in coordination with Syria," Muallem said.
