US, RUSSIAN MILITARY HOLD UNPRECEDENTED TALKS ON SYRIA

USandRussiaSenior American and Russian military leaders met for an unprecedented, face-to-face session somewhere in the Middle East this week to discuss the growing tensions in the competing battles to retake one of the remaining Islamic State strongholds in Syria.

Army Col. Ryan Dillon told Pentagon reporters on Thursday that U.S. and Russian general officers shared maps, graphics and information about where their forces are battling around Deir Ezzor. He would not provide details on when or where the meeting occurred, beyond saying it took place in recent days somewhere in the region.
