MOSCOW, October 1. /TASS/. OSCE Parliamentary Assembly President Ilkka Kanerva has supported creating an international coalition for settling the situation in Syria.

"I hope that this [Russian airstrikes against Islamic State positions in Syria] is happening in accordance with international law, and we need an international coalition for settling the situation in Syria," Kanerva said answering a TASS question on his opinion about Russia’s operation in Syria against the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group.

On Thursday, Russian Federation Council unanimously granted permission to the Russian president to use the nation’s military force in Syria. 

Russian Aerospace Forces have already delivered airstrikes at eight IS positions in Syria, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said adding that some 20 sorties were made.
