Moscow is perplexed by the fact that, while the international antiterrorist coalition in Syria led by the U.S. is refusing to coordinate its actions with Russia, it has criticized Russia for not coordinating its steps in the country, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said.
"It's impossible, on the one hand, to reject any contacts and at the same time accuse us of not coordinating our efforts," Zakharova told journalists on Oct.6 in commenting on Western media reports alleging that Russia had been provoking some incidents while conducting its military operation in Syria.
Moscow is "open to any contacts" on Syria, she said.
"You are welcome to offer your own information exchange formula and invite us," Zakharova said.
