The Kremlin does not have information about the alleged Russian air strikes on terrorist sites in Syria. It deems coordination mechanisms and information exchange to be the most important goals on the Syrian track at the moment.
"For now, coordination mechanisms need to be established," Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.
The Russian chief of state told the UN General Assembly on Monday about an information center of Russia, Syria, Iran and Iraq in Baghdad, Peskov said, adding there was an additional coordination mechanism bound to provide"an exchange of information with the Israelis at the level of general staffs."
"It is of paramount importance now to start a complete exchange of information, and actually this information exchange was discussed at a meeting [between Vladimir Putin and] the U.S. president yesterday. This is the most important task for now," Peskov said.
Future decisions "will depend on the way the situation will develop," he said.
As to whether he possessed information about any Russian moves in the conflict region, such as air strikes, Peskov said, "I am not aware of any strikes."
