Russia, Iran, Iraq and Syria have made an agreement to set a joint information center to coordinate their operations against ISIS. The center will be based in Baghdad.
“The main goal of the center will be gathering, processing and analyzing current information about the situation in the Middle East – primarily for fighting IS,” Russian news agencies cited a military-diplomatic source on Saturday.
The information centerwill be headed by an officer of one of the founding countries. According to the source, Iraq will run the center for the next three months. Then a representative of another country will take his place.
Russia, Iran, Iraq and Syria will use the information center to coordinate anti-ISIS operations.
The source pointed out that this agreement is a milestone for uniting the region’s countries in the “war on terrorism”.
The Iraqi army’s joint operations command confirmed the agreement on Saturday.
