The US is ready to cooperate with any country, including Russia, in the fight against the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said.

“I think if there’s a way that we can combat ISIS with any country, whether it’s Russia or anyone else, and we have a shared national interest in that, sure, we’ll take it,” Spicer said, answering the question about a possibility of co-operation with Russia and joint military operations against terrorists on the Syrian territory.

Will remind, during his inauguration, US President Donald Trump said that he intends “unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth.”

Commenting on the Trump’s words, press secretary the Russian President, Dmitry Peskov, noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin “repeatedly said that there is no alternative to cooperation in the fight against terrorism and no possibility for a single country to deal effectively with the deadliest challenge of the XXI century.”

    It’s really refreshing to hear a sane well articulated Whitehouse spokesman compared to that idiot (excuse my French) John Kirby.

      If they cant co-operate on anything else, they need to put their differences aside on this issue and hammer out a deal.

      You mean Josh Earnest. Admiral Kirby was the state dep spokesman.

    Trump going to bomb Saudi Arabia,Turkey,Pakistan???

    If not….he’s full of it…….Saying He will eradicate Radical Islamic Terrorism.

    War on Drugs…..meant more drugs in America and more people sent to Prison.
    War on Terror…. became more organized terror world wide.

    If Trump is going to slug it out with Islam….it’s high fives from the Pope and Israel.

    Another Crusade…….except Israel is exempt.
