Russia has established coordination of actions in Syria with certain groups of moderate opposition and will continue to build bridges towards them in the fight against terrorism, Russian Ambassador to Syria Alexander Kinshchak has told Interfax in an interview.
"Since the very beginning of our operation in Syria, representatives of the Russian administration have repeatedly declared the readiness to interact with formations of the so-called moderate opposition. Some leaders of those units have responded to our appeal. Contacts with them have been established and, in some cases, practical cooperation and coordination of actions [have begun]," Kinshchak said.
"Our efforts to build bridges towards the patriotic part of the armed opposition will continue," he said.
"Positive examples are far from being few, they exist on every 'front' of the fight against terrorist groups, but I would not go into details, considering that this issue is highly sensitive," the ambassador said.
