LONDON (Sputnik) — In late September, Russia, Syria, Iraq and Iran created the Baghdad Information Center to coordinate joint military action against the notorious Islamic State militant group. The four countries are represented by officers of the national armed forces, whose primary task is to collect and analyze data related to ISIL operations in the region.
"We will encourage Iran to play a transparent and constructive role in regional affairs, particularly in the struggle against violent Islamist extremism. This is an example of the progress that can be made through diplomacy and dialogue, and provides lessons for clear-eyed engagement," the document said.
The strategy praised the historic deal on Iran's nuclear program, signed in July by Tehran and the P5+1 group of international mediators, comprising Russia, the United States, China, the United Kingdom, France and Germany.
The agreement ensures the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions' easing.
Iran is among the countries making extensive efforts to support the government of the conflict-torn Syria in the fight against terrorism.
