The Iraqi, Iranian and Syrian military chiefs-of-staff have agreed to develop the intelligence coordination center, which includes all of the three Middle East countries alongside Russia, an Iraqi military spokesman said on Tuesday.
During a meeting held in Damascus, Brigadier General Yahya Rasool, spokesman for Iraq’s Joint Operations Command, described the tripartite meetings of the military chiefs-of-staff of Iraq, Syria and Iran as positive and successful.
The meetings, according to Rasool, yielded in an agreement to coordinate joint action to secure the Iraqi-Syrian border and continue intelligence exchange.
The military leaders agreed to develop the center of exchange intelligence between Syria, Iraq, Iran and Russia to increase coordination with regard to the anti-terror war, Rasool said.
The coming period will witness an increasing coordination between the Iraqi and Syrian armies to prevent the infiltration of ISIS militants, he added.
