MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Moscow and Washington are unlikely to have the same outlook regarding the Syrian crisis, but must work together as actively as possible, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Tuesday.
“I’m not sure that we can agree on a single approach with the United States on all issues,” Zakharova said on the Russian television channel Rossiya-24.
“We have a common understanding of the final goal, which is a political settlement in Syria and this is very important. We also have a common understanding of the existing terrorist threat in the country,” Zakharova added.
Since 2011, Syria has been mired in a civil war; the country's government forces are fighting numerous opposition groups and terrorist organizations, including Daesh and the al-Nusra Front.
