According to the statement the foreign ministers will try to chalk out a comprehensive plan to cooperate with each other in Syria citing the growing fear of Islamic State Group.

Earlier the United States and Russia signed a memorandum of understanding that establishes measures so their pilots steer clear of each other as they conduct separate bombing campaigns in Syria, the Pentagon said.

Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said the document was signed earlier in the day and took immediate effect.

“There´s a series of protocols in place that effectively are intended to avoid any sort of risk of a mid-air incident between our air crews and Russian air crews,” Cook said.

“If they follow these protocols, we should not have the risk of engagement with Russian air crews over Syria.”

Moscow also reported that both countries had signed the memorandum.
