"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.
