Washington: Joint efforts are needed to combat the "Islamic State"

US Secretary of State John Kerry said during a press conference before talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov that coordinated efforts are needed to fight the terrorist group Islamic State, but so far there are none. Such comments he made in connection with the creation of the Russian Federation, Syria, Iraq and Iran, the focal point for countering the IG in Baghdad.

"All efforts should be coordinated until this happens," - quotes Kerry RIA "News".

The US Secretary of State stressed that it is necessary to assess the progress and influence of this initiative, and this issue will be discussed during the negotiations between the presidents of the United States and the Russian Federation.

In turn, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the main purpose of the coordination center in Baghdad is to coordinate efforts to combat IS.

"We are coordinating actions (with partners) in the fight against LIH," he said.

The center, created by the Russian Federation, Syria, Iran and Iraq, will collect, process, summarize and analyze data on the situation in the Middle East region, transferring them to the general headquarters of these countries.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that he personally informed the heads of Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Jordan about the creation of such a focal point. In addition, according to him, the United States was informed about this.

      What would all be comfortable, could agree on elections in Syria?
      If they really hold, and everyone will clearly need Assad or not the people of Syria.

    The United States has already worked out its campaign. And now they want joint efforts, and if it is successful, which is no doubt at all, to say that they gave heat to the terrorists. He asks them to say: go change, we’ll tell you what to do ..

    Now the United States is puzzled not to be left out. For so many years the so-called. "moderate opposition", they portrayed the fight against IS, and now what? Russia negotiates and helps those who are really at war with IS. And in the West, there are also smart people who began to understand that the United States completely failed the fight against the Islamists and not only failed, but also actively supported them. Oh, how Americans do not want to lose their image of "fighters for democracy".
