On Tuesday, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, the Iranian deputy foreign minister for Arab and African affairs, said that Russia and Iran would enhance their coordination with the Syrian government on Tehran's plan for a political settlement of the ongoing Syrian civil war.
According to the channel, the coordination cell includes participation of low-level Russian generals. The Iraqi government may also be involved, the media said.
Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011 as government forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fight several opposition and radical Islamist militant groups, including IS jihadists.
According to UN estimates, over 250,000 people have been killed since the beginning of the Syrian conflict.
