Moscow: It is important to have lists on terrorist organizations in Syria

Russian Foreign Ministry said earlier that it is important to agree on the lists of terrorist organizations in Syria.

“Members of the International Group for Supporting Syria have to make more coordination to prepare lists of terrorist organizations,” Russia Today quoted Gatilov as saying.

Gatilov told journalists on Tuesday that there are clear problems which face the process of forming a list about the terrorist organizations in Syria, adding “this issue requires more study and coordination among members of the said group.”

Gatilov discussed today with two representatives of the Syrian opposition means of launching the political settlement process later this month as planned by the UN.
