USA vows to work with Russian Federation to defeat Isis

He praised the announcement as a first step in U.S. Like his Saudi hosts, Mr. Trump framed the problems of West Asia as due exclusively to Iran's belligerence and terrorism by Islamist extremist groups, despite the kingdom's destabilising activities across the region, including its ongoing catastrophic war in Yemen and its recent blockade of Qatar. Jordan and Israel are also part of the deal, the Associated Press reports, quoting an unnamed USA official.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Wednesday called on Russian Federation to do more to bring peace to Syria and suggested Moscow and Washington could cooperate on establishing no-fly zones in the war-torn Arab country.

Tillerson said the U.S.

For years, the former Cold War foes have been backing opposing sides in Syria's war.

The U.S. and Russian Federation have always been at loggerheads in Syria, where Moscow backs the government of President Bashar Assad and Washington support rebel groups fighting to oust the regime. Washington has backed rebels fighting Assad.

He added: "The United States believes Russian Federation, as a guarantor of the Assad regime and an early entrant into the Syrian conflict, has a responsibility to ensure that the needs of the Syrian people are met and that no faction in Syria illegitimately retakes or occupies areas liberated from ISIS' or other terrorist groups' control".

And by flexing their military reach in Syria with a missile launch, Iran's Revolutionary Guards and other regime hardliners risk inflaming more tension with the Trump administration - tension that could boil over in the coming war for dominance of southern Syria.

Tony Martin continues racing at Tour de France with concussion
With Slovak Sagan disqualified, Norway's Alexander Kristoff came second and Greipel third. The world champion was also docked 80 points from his green jersey total.

Since 2015, Russian Federation has been conducting cruise missile strikes and aerial attacks against terrorist positions in Syria at a request from the Syrian government. And they stopped short of endorsing Russian-led or United Nations peace mediation efforts between Assad's government and rebel groups. The two countries are critical US allies who have voiced concerns over the heightened militarization activity on their border with Syria. He made no reference to Israel's participation. There has also been mention of humanitarian aid being allowed in, but past ceasefires have nearly uniformly failed at that goal.

As Russia's "de-escalation plan" for the ongoing war in Syria takes effect, neighboring countries are keen to return massive Syrian refugee populations to the four safe zones that the plan establishes in the western part of the country. The U.S., wary of Iran's involvement, stayed away from that effort.

Mr Heras believes Iran remains a wild card in this plan and whether it challenges the United States zone of influence or remains present through proxies by the Syrian-Israeli border.

Previous cease-fires in Syria have collapsed or failed to reduce violence for long, and it was unclear whether this deal would be any better.

"The continued use of CW in Iraq and Syria provides a sobering reminder of the challenges that remain", wrote acting Assistant Secretary of State Anita Friedt. Under the Obama administration, USA policy in Syria was focused on containing the IS, largely ignoring Mr. Assad, and keeping American allies from fighting each other. How he leaves could be determined later, the political process should include a transition away from the Assad family, he added.

The aircraft were reportedly supported by Su-30SM fighters based in Syria's Hmeymim airbase.

Lavrov further said that despite the standing questions over Tillerson's comments, Moscow saw any willingness by the United States to cooperate on Syria as a "step in the right direction".
