The Voice of America writes today about the expectations of Russia regarding the upcoming Syrian negotiations.

The fact is that the destabilization of the situation around ISIS is becoming a threat to the global community, and attempts by Syrian factions to join the terrorist organization, can serve as a prerequisite for the West and Russia to seek common solutions to the crisis.

In order to face the very serious threat from ISIS, Europe and Russia should forget their differences and unite efforts, otherwise the world’s boundaries may change forever.
