Russia's Defense Ministry has suspended interaction with the Pentagon within the framework of the  bilateral memorandum across Syria, after the US  shot down Syrian warplane, RT reported quoting the Ministry.

On July 19, it halted cooperation in the framework of the Memorandum on the Prevention of Incidents and Ensuring Air Safety in Syria.

The ministry has demanded a thorough investigation by the US military command into the incident with the Syrian government military jet, with the results to be shared with the Russian side.

“In the areas of combat missions of Russian air fleet in Syrian skies, any airborne objects, including aircraft and unmanned vehicles of the [US-led] international coalition, located to the west of the Euphrates River, will be tracked by Russian ground and air defense forces as air targets,” the Russian Ministry of Defense stated.
