(TASS) Exchange of information between Russian and US militaries over Syria has stopped of late, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Monday.
“All contacts between the military have been stopped of late, there has been no exchange of information,” he said.
Gatilov however noted that Russia was trying to agree with the US on resumption of truce in Syria.
“We are trying to agree with Americans on resumption of truce in Syria,” Gatilov said.
He said it has not been done yet despite regular contacts between the Russian and US top diplomats.
“Although what has been written in the September 9 document gives a good opportunity to get the process of Syrian settlement moving,” Gatilov said.
He stressed that the Russian side was not discussing with the US the future of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
“We are not discussing this issue – the fate of Assad, with them,” the diplomat said.
