WASHINGTON - The United States military is still able to deconflict operations with Russia over Syria, a US military spokesman said on Monday, but it was unclear how that was happening.

On Friday, Interfax news agency, citing a Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, said Russia had notified the Pentagon it would close down a communication line used to avoid accidental clashes in Syria.

"We have continued to deconflict as necessary with the Russians because whenever we are flying we have to use all the available means to make sure that we don't have any mid-air incidents. That particular line and how it is used, we are not talking about it," US Central Command spokesman Colonel John Thomas told reporters.
