Russia to Step Up Anti-Terror Coop. in Syria With Turkey, Iran

Russia is set to step up close cooperation with Turkey and Iran to counter terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with Pan-Arab newspaper Asharq Al-Awasat on Wednesday.
Lavrov said Moscow’s daily practical cooperation with Ankara and Tehran at all levels illustrates that "Turkey and Iran play, in the full sense of the word, the key role in terms of stabilizing the situation in Syria and Iraq," TASS reported.
"Given the complex and multidimensional challenges the Middle East faces, we think that the increased foreign political interaction between Moscow, Ankara and Tehran meets the interests of all states of the region," the top diplomat said.
"We intend to continue a deepened exchange of views and active and vigorous work with Turkish and Iranian partners, first of all, to counter terrorist structures in Syria and Iraq, and to steadily normalize the situation in the Middle East at large," he continued.
