MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Budapest has called on a US-led coalition against the Islamic State jihadist group to join efforts with Moscow to effectively resolve the long-standing Syrian civil war, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said Saturday.

"We have to create stability in the Middle East and North Africa region. And the major issue is to make peace in Syria. There’s going to be no forward progress, no possibility to resolve the crisis in Syria, unless there is an agreement and pragmatic cooperation between the Transatlantic Community and Russia," Szijjarto said in his address to the UN General Assembly.

According to Szijjarto, the US-led coalition of over 60 states, which has been conducting airstrikes in Syria against ISil militants without seeking the approval of Damascus since 2014, has not shown enough sufficiency, as ISil continues to gain additional territory in the region.

Russia launched precision airstrikes on ISil positions in Syria at the request of Syrian President Bashar Assad on Wednesday.
