Russia could join anti-ISIS coalition if conditions met

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Moscow could "theoretically"join the US-led coalition fighting Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (ISIS) if its conditions are met, Interfax news agency quoted Ilya Rogachev, a director at the Russian foreign ministry, as saying on Friday.

Moscow wants its long-time ally Damascus to be included in the international efforts to combat ISIS and says any international military operation in Syria should have a United Nations mandate.
