Russia, Jordan to coordinate militaries on Syria

October 23, 2015

MOSCOW (AP) — Russian news reports say Moscow and Jordan have agreed on creating a center in Amman for coordinating their military activities in Syria.

The reports say the agreement was reached Friday during talks in Vienna between Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his Syrian counterpart, Nasser Judeh. Lavrov said the center in the Jordanian capital would coordinate the military air campaigns of the two countries over Syria.

Russia began extensive airstrikes in Syria on Sept. 30, which Moscow says are targeting camps and facilities of the militant Islamic State group.
