British Prime Minister Theresa May called on Russia to continue the use of "deconfliction" measures over the skies of Syria to reduce the risk of misunderstandings in what is a crowded airspace.Russia said today it would treat US-led coalition aircraft flying west of the River Euphrates in Syria as potential targets and track them with missile systems and military aircraft, but stopped short of saying it would shoot them down."There are deconfliction arrangements in place already in relation to activity that takes place over the skies of Syria and those deconfliction arrangements will continue," May told reporters in Downing Street.Her spokesman added that May called on Russia to continue to use these measures to "reduce the chance of misunderstandings over what is a crowded airspace".
