While it is not a secret to many that there may be a proxy war between the United States and Russia, it is a great news to see opportunities for the two giant countries to unite for one purpose. Russia sees the necessity to consider more military cooperation with the United States to fight a shared enemy, The ISIS.
In the previous months, we can recall that there may have been events of misunderstanding between the actions facilitated by the two parties: when Russia surprises the US with accord on battling ISIS, and when Russia answers the US criticisms over military aid to Syria.

Overcoming differences takes time, but we are glad for the recent announcements that representatives of Russia made recently.

Lavrov also told the reporters, "I am sure that neither the United States nor Russia wants (the conflict) to become a so-called proxy war. But it is obvious for me that the situation makes the task of cooperation between the military more relevant." He added in the latter part of the discussion that securing a ceasefire in Syria's 4-year civil war would continue as well as the battle with the terrorist groups.
The cooperation between two giant countries to fight against the Islamic rebels in Syria is a good move. It is a stronger and better fight against enemies. Military families would have a better peace of mind against threats from ISIS. Let us know about your thoughts and opinions.Other Articles
