The Russian Defense Ministry said that Russian military officials interact with their U.S. counterparts on Syria at a high level.

"Today, we have good contact established with the U.S. in the military field, as we maintain a permanent dialogue between our servicemen in Hmeimim and the U.S. servicemen stationed at their base in Amman. We have good contacts in Geneva," Russian Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said in an interview with Rossiya-24 (VGTRK) television.

Similar contacts have also been established through military diplomats, Antonov added.

"The relations are being developed, as our presidents have been talking of the need for such contacts, such interaction and we strictly follow all such instructions," Antonov said.
