USA vows to work with Russian Federation to defeat Isis

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Wednesday called on Russian Federation to do more to bring peace to Syria and suggested Moscow and Washington could cooperate on establishing no-fly zones in the war-torn Arab country.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says the USA and Russian Federation may work together to impose no-fly zones in Syria. Tillerson added that Russian Federation has "an obligation to prevent any further use of chemical weapons of any kind by the Assad regime".

His comments came as Mr Trump prepared to meet Mr Putin on Friday in Germany.

Tillerson said all actors in the Syrian military theater must follow guidelines to avoid accidents in the air and on the ground.

Samsung to invest $18.6bn in memory chips
Samsung is advancing its efforts into expanding its semiconductor production as it plans to invest $18bn into its chip business. The company's investment plan comes as new South Korean President, Moon Jae-in, calls on local businesses to create more jobs.

Tillerson said Washington and Moscow had "unresolved" differences on several issues but "have the potential to appropriately coordinate in Syria in order to produce stability and serve our mutual security interests".

Tillerson's statement sought to tie the need for Russian cooperation in Syria to the USA mission to defeat ISIS, saying, "In order to complete the mission, the worldwide community, and especially Russia, must remove obstacles to the defeat of ISIS and help provide stability that prevents ISIS from rising anew from the ashes of their failed and fraudulent caliphate".

Turkey has been beefing up military presence on the Syria side of the borders as part of preparations to strike the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to dislodge them from the border town of Afreen in northern Syria, as Ankara rejects any Kurdish influence near its borders.

Lavrentiev also indicated that agreement on a fourth zone in the south would have to be approved by the US and Jordan, as those two countries support opposition groups in that part of Syria.
