Moscow is ready to actively cooperate with all the forces, Lavrov said

Moscow is ready to actively cooperate with all the forces, which are fighting "on the land" in Syria against the ISIS, including with the Kurds, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"We are aware that Iraqi and Syrian Kurds are among those who are confronting a threat from ISIS and other extremist groupings with arms in hands 'on the land'. They are acting with the Iraqi and Syrian armies, fighting for their homes, for the right to live on their land," he said at a meeting with leader of the Turkish pro-Kurdish People's Democratic Party Selahattin Demirtas.

"Russia, participating in an anti-terrorist operation in Syria upon the request by the Syrian government, is ready to actively cooperate with those who are fighting this threat 'on the land'," the minister said.

"It is principally important to bring together the possibilities of all those who seek to decisively fight terrorism," he said.
