Russia open to allying with US to retake Raqqa

According to Russia’s Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, The Russian Federation is willing to work with the American-led coalition to embark on the liberation of Raqqa city from the grip of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s men. Basically, we focus on our areas of interest with your support, and we will support you in your areas of “labour.”

“We are ready to coordinate our actions with the Americans, because Raqqa is in the eastern part of Syria, and the American coalition is mainly … acting there,” he told a Russian broadcaster according to Interfax news on Monday.

Perhaps, this is no secret, if I say at some stage the Americans suggested performing a ‘division of labour’: the Russian Air Forces should concentrate on the liberation of Palmyra, and the American coalition with Russian support will focus on the liberation of Raqqa,” he added.
