Washington and Moscow to discuss safety in operations in Syria
The USA and Russia are planning to resume negotiations in order to avoid accidents in the Syrian airspace, as both the countries are conducting airstrikes in Syria.
Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook stated that Russia has responded to the US proposal on safety in operations in the airspace of Syria. Bilateral talks are likely to take place over this weekend. In particular, the parties will discuss what language the crews will communicate in and how much air space these aircrafts will leave for one another.
The active work aimed at increasing contacts with the foreign colleagues is being continued, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
The Russian Ministry of Defence has prepared a project of a joint interdepartmental document aimed at prevention of possible incidents in the Syrian airspace between the military aircraft of Russia the ones of the coalition led by the USA.
