NATO head Jens Stoltenberg told AFP Thursday he was concerned by Russia's "substantial" military build-up in Syria and urged Moscow to play a constructive role in the fight against Islamic State jihadis.

"It underlines the importance of Russia making clear what are the intentions," Stoltenberg told AFP in an interview at NATO HQ in Brussels.

"I think the first step now is to sit down with the United States and to make clear what are (their) intentions... and to try to cooperate and give a constructive contribution to the efforts led by the United States to fight ISIL (Islamic State)."
