"The coordination center already exists in Baghdad… What we have now is joint coordination and information exchange between the founding countries," Shahwan Abdallah said.
According to the Iraqi official, only the department for collecting intelligence data related to the Islamic State (ISIL) jihadists movement, used for selecting targets for air strikes, is operating at the moment.
"If there is information on ISIL movements in Iraq, then the Iraqi aviation carries out airstrikes, if the information is on Syria then the Russian aviation does it," Abdallah said.
On September 30, Russia began conducting precision airstrikes on Islamic State militant group positions in Syria at the request of President Bashar Assad.
Since the beginning of the air campaign, Russian Aerospace Forces have carried out some 830 strikes, killing several hundred militants and destroying dozens of command centers, and depots used by the terrorists.
