MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 16th January, 2020) The Russian Defense Ministry's center for Syrian reconciliation has refuted reports alleging that US troops tried to obstruct its military police patrol in the northeast of the Arab republic.
"Publications in certain foreign online resources about the alleged obstruction of the Russian patrol in Hasakah province by US forces do not correspond to reality," Maj. Gen. Yuri Borenkov said at a briefing.
According to Borenkov, Russian and US military continue cooperating via their deconflicting channel to prevent any incidents posing a threat to their servicemen.
