US intends to strengthen cooperation with the Russian Federation in Syria

30
The US military is counting on strengthening cooperation with the Russian Aerospace Forces in the sky over Syria, reports RIA News message of the Washington Post.



The leadership of the Western coalition on Saturday accused Russia of hitting the positions of the Arab-Kurdish SDF units. At the same time, a Kurdish source told the agency that 6 SDF fighters suffered as a result of a strike not by Russian but by Syrian aircraft. The Russian Defense Ministry, in turn, said that the US military had been informed in advance of the borders of the military operation in Deir ez-Zor.

The Pentagon is taking additional steps to ensure direct communication between the American and Russian commanders on the spot, after the US allies in the Deir ez-Zor area were hit, the newspaper writes, citing the head of the U.S. Chief of Staff Committee Joseph Dunford.

According to the information, Dunford told a small group of journalists that “the channel for eliminating conflict situations (between the Russian and US military) did not work when Syrian and Russian aircraft were bombed by US-backed Syrian opposition forces east of the Euphrates River.”

According to the American general, during a telephone conversation with the Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Valery Gerasimov, he suggested that military leaders "could use this communication channel to identify the enemy moving freely in the Euphrates region."

He added that the situation was also discussed in a conversation between Secretary of State Tillerson and Russian Minister Lavrov.

According to the newspaper, "the US and Russian military traditionally use the Euphrates as a dividing line:" Russian and Syrian government forces attack targets in the west, and US-supported groups in the east.

"However, in recent weeks, numerous offensive operations by both the United States and Russia practically overlap with each other," the article says.

Resolving conflicts in this area has become more difficult than a few months ago. We have not solved all the questions
noted the dunford.

    So, A. measures will again bomb the SAA (by mistake, essno). It is necessary to drive the Indians from Syria, and not "interact" with them.

      What a hypocritical creature!
      The hope that the same techniques repeated by "partners" once in a while will find their asymmetric answer.

          As Obama said: “We are always on the right side of history!”
          From the falsification of history will help the Balkanization of the United States and the flooding of Britain (naturally, as a result of a natural cataclysm)

        An asymmetric answer will be found when the forces equalize.

        In the meantime, we will endure beatings and complain to the UN;)

      Yes, just got pro-American opposition on the tinsel in the east of the Euphrates. So howled. You see, maybe the Syrians and the Russian Aerospace Forces will at least warn. And you can expect anything from these Russians

      By mistake or not, but today we have made a statement that all who opened fire will be subjected to retaliatory strike, without exception, and verification of belonging and lice. Well, as far as interaction is concerned, for God's sake - they nodded at the mattress patterns, maneuvered and continue to bomb, if necessary attributing the “unexpected” to mistakes.

    The fact that beyond Euphrates, to the east is the same territory of Syria. What, nafig, agreement. One is bad. Kurds. Sooner or later, they will clash. I do not think that it is possible to agree with the Kurds. They are so far on horseback.

      Yes, ours have already filled their hand in “agreements” with mattresses and will arrange the terms of the agreement so that it allows one of the parties to the Russian Federation or the SAA to act outside the framework, as mattresses clearly demonstrated that they do not keep their word. Previously, mattresses completely refused to cooperate, and the agreements were used to re-equip and regroup terrorists, and now, having looked at the map, they decided that it was time to negotiate. They really do not want to give up the oil-bearing region beyond the Euphrates.

      Well, Kurds and I don’t have any words, so the window for dialogue is open. It all depends on the proposal and who better feed the "horse". The difference is that Russia has never destroyed the population in the history of wars, has not abandoned its allies and fulfilled the agreements that cannot be said about the USA, for which baseness in the war is the main tactic. There is not a single ally, using which the mattresses did not further humiliate or betray him.

            For example, Afghanistan, Korea, Germany.

            After the drain of all allies in the 90s, together with Cuba and Libya, it gives me that there are people who think. that Russia is at least to some extent fair and keeps its word;)

      That's right, colleague! good As always, they want to keep up with the distribution of medals and the division of nishtyaks. Hence the words about "strengthening interaction." And they also expect due to the mentioned interaction to timely remove their barmalei from under the attacks of the air forces.

    )

    There is a great way to resolve this issue - the United States and its coalition to get out of Syria, as repeatedly stated by the government of this sovereign country. How would America perceive if the SAA troops landed in California without demand and made a mess there with shooting and bombing? It seems that the Americans would be delighted. bully
