Russia is ready to work with America on liberating Raqqa  : Lavrov

In an interview with the Ren-TV Russia’s Foreign Minister said that Russia is ready to work with the US in liberating Raqqa from ISIS terrorists.

“We are ready to coordinate our actions with the Americans, because Raqqa is in the eastern part of Syria, and the American coalition is mainly … acting there,” Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in that interview.

According to Lavrov, the US has shown interest to divide the operations in Syria where the US –led coalition partners to recapture Raqqa, and Russia to capture ancient city of Palmyra in the central Homs Province.

“Perhaps, this is no secret, if I say that at some stage the Americans suggested performing a ‘division of labor;’ the Russian Air forces should concentrate on the liberation of Palmyra, and the American coalition with Russian support will focus on the liberation of Raqqa,”  Lavrov stated.

Since September 30 last year, on a request of Damascus government Russia launched its airstrikes against ISIS and other terrorist group active in Syria. Although the US-led coalition have been bombing several alleged ISIS positions without Syrian government authorization since September 2014.

However, from March 2011, Syria has been facing foreign back terrorist atrocities. The conflict with terrorists in Syria has claimed more than 470000 lives and uprooted nearly half of the population.

    really?
    this is the behavior of a major world power?
    the Russians are practically begging for recognition!
    this is pitiful.
    was Kruschev the only man in Russian history with any balls?

    It looks as if Russia has secured its minimum objective of propping up Assad in the west of Syria, and is acquiescing in the Israeli/American plan to break up the rest of the country.
