According to Russian Defense Minister, Sergei Shoigu, Russia and the US are on the threshold of joint operations against terrorists in the Syria’s city of Aleppo.
On Monday, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that joint operations against terrorists in the Syria’s city of Aleppo are close to be started by the US and Russia.
“We are in a very active stage of negotiations with our American colleagues now, both in Geneva and Amman; we are practically in constant talks with Washington. Step by step we are nearing a structure – I’m talking about Aleppo only – that would allow us to truly begin working together so that this territory, this long-suffering region could find peace,” Shoigu told the Rossiya-24 Russia’s TV channel.
Russia’s military building up in and around Syria was targeted to politely push the western partners to start cooperation. It seems that Russia has practically reached its purpose.
