MOSCOW, December 20. /TASS/. The foreign ministers of Russia, Turkey and Iran have coordinated a joint statement on the political process in Syria, Russia’s top diplomat Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday.
"We have coordinated a joint statement of the foreign ministers of Iran, Russia and Turkey on the measures aimed to boost the political process in order to stop the Syrian conflict," Lavrov said at a news conference following the trilateral meeting.
Russia, Iran and Turkey are determined to cooperate in combating the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra (terror groups outlawed in Russia), the three countries’ foreign ministers said in a common statement adopted on Tuesday. The common state was read out by Lavrov at a press conference.
"Russia, Iran and Turkey confirm their determination to cooperate in combating the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra as well as in separating armed opposition groups from terrorists," Lavrov said.
