The United States has not coordinated airstrikes in Syria with Russia, US Department of Defense spokesperson Adrian Rankine-Galloway told Sputnik on Monday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, the Russian Defense Ministry said that the United States provided Daesh coordinates for Russia-coalition airstrikes on Daesh positions in Syria.

"The Department of Defense is not coordinating airstrikes with the Russian military in Syria," Rankine-Galloway said.

The spokesperson noted that the Defense Department only maintains a de-confliction channel of communication with the Russian military to ensure safety of flights over Syria.
