Military Review

The American side is not going to deepen contacts with the Russian Defense Ministry on Syria

33
The United States highly appreciates the level of contacts with the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria on conflict prevention, but do not see an opportunity to deepen them, reports RIA News A statement by Colonel John Thomas, representative of the US Central Command (CENTCOM).


Donald Tram when visiting the US Central Command at the McDill Air Force Base.

I don’t think that we can have more (contacts) ... I don’t think that we can be more active in terms of preventing conflicts along the lines of the joint operations center (USA). We do this daily several times if necessary,
said thomas to the agency.

He also expressed confidence that in the event of the emergence of new problems in Syria between the military of the two countries, "there is a mechanism to solve them."

It (the mechanism) is extremely effective. We really did a good job of conflict prevention, and this applies to both parties, who share responsibility and talk to each other when necessary,
said the colonel.

At the same time, Thomas recalled that these contacts relate only to conflict prevention, and no more. US law "prohibits cooperating in any way with the Russians."

Earlier in the Western coalition reported two face-to-face meetings at the level of generals to discuss measures to prevent conflicts. It is known that negotiations took place outside of Iraq and Syria. The coalition command did not rule out that a new meeting might follow, but did not specify where and when it could pass.

We do not talk about them (meetings) in advance. These are not standard meetings, they are held as necessary ... Now we are pleased that we have this mechanism at the level of three-star generals who can, if necessary, help (in resolving issues between the US and the Russian Federation),
Thomas said, answering the question about the possibility of a new in-person meeting of the Russian and American military.

          With respect to your earned stars, try to write without errors. This is not Facebook and not Classmates. This is Military Review.
          As for the Americans, the colonel said something into the microphone. He said this for domestic American consumption. If he speaks further without errors, he will receive a brigadier general. Information - 0.

            Do you want to look the most literate? Or are you a teacher of the Russian language and literature, since you are always looking for mistakes? It’s easier to be.

                Indeed, VO and not even the program "I appreciate the most literate me, the rest" You should be more modest, with your "I" and even more carefully with strangers. Well, with all our hearts we congratulate you, with your literacy achievements !!! hi

    Yes, there is no sense in mattresses in Syria, only one damage is done to the Syrians, and the Barmalei are nursed together with their allies. You need to drive striped and others like them with a filthy broom from the ATS.

      Hey. The trouble is that the "spoiler" is a little thin. The Americans entered the impudent Syria and do not intend to leave from there. Moreover, they are actively expanding and strengthening their bases in the northeast and east of Syria (5 bases on the borders with Iraq and Jordan). What they are doing there has already been written on VO more than once - clearly anti-government (Assad) affairs. Their main task is to maintain a mess and tension, if not all, then on part of Syrian territory, and preferably in areas of oil and gas fields. To strike at their bases means to unleash the 3rd World War, and they themselves will not leave there - these are Anglo-Saxons. yes

      hi , Gennady.
      I can only assume that I’m thinking about how else to “poof the poof” to control Billary and the blackest. And the issues of Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria are dealt with by D. Mattis and the "Politburo" of the chiefs of staff.

    In the 90s, I remember very tightly in contact with the United States (hoping and believing) ... Well, everyone knows the result, we still can’t recover .. So good buy America, without you, the air is cleaner and easier to breathe (despite the sanctions and other provocations)

    In general, they would have dumped pi ndos from Syria and would not have gotten confused, had not been crap. As history shows, the less "interaction" with striped the better.
