Pentagon says there are no agreements with Russian military on Syria


The U.S. and Russian military currently have no agreements on cooperation in Syria. This was announced by Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook.

Earlier, at a joint press conference with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told about an agreement to intensify contacts with the United States on Syria. It also includes contacts between the leadership of the Russian military base in Syria, and representatives of the American command in the Jordanian capital.

“Some contradictions in our discussions regarding long-term solutions need to be eliminated, but, as the Secretary of State said, there are still issues to be solved. There is no agreement at the moment,” concluded Cook.

Earlier, Lavrov and Kerry reiterated the need to preserve the Kurds as part of the Syrian state.
