An important development in the battle against ISIS.
Russia is urging Western countries to partner with the Syrian government – in the fight against the Islamic State group.
New satellite imagery shows the recent arrival of Russian military equipment – including tanks – at a base in Syria. And now the Russian foreign minister is urging the U-S-led coalition fighting the Islamic State group to co-ordinate its action – with Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Canada joined that coalition last October, and extended its mission to include Syria in the spring.
