Syrian President Bashar al-Assad claimed his administration receives information about the U.S.-led attacks on ISIS and is kept informed of the campaign via third parties, including Iraq.

He made the remarks during a BBC interview, though stressed he did not coordinate with the U.S.

“They don’t talk to us, we don’t talk to them,” he said during an interview in Damascus. “Sometimes they [the third parties] convey message, general message, but there’s nothing tactical.”

While Assad also denounced the U.S. plan to train moderate rebels as a “pipe-dream,” his public admission regarding knowledge of the campaign suggests the hardline U.S. stance against Syria may be softening. Read more at the BBC.
