Kremlin: Moscow and Washington exchange information on Syria

But countries not coordinating their anti-terrorist activities, Peskov says

Russia and the U.S. continue exchanging information on the situation in Syria, but they are not coordinating their anti-terrorist activities, Russian presidential press officer Dmitry Peskov said.

"Unfortunately, we can state that there is still no cooperation in the anti-terrorist operation in Syria. But information exchange with our American partners takes place twice a day via relevant channels, and President Putin spoke about that," Peskov told reporters on June 1.

Responding to a question as to whether there is some secret agreement on cooperation between Russia and the U.S. on Syria, Peskov said: "No."

Peskov reiterated that Russia is participating in the anti-terrorist operation in Syria at the request of the Syrian administration. "Our military are not working in Iraq," he said.
