UNITED NATIONS, February 1 (Itar-Tass) — US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton intends to discuss with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov the situation in Syria. She made this statement to reporters at the UN headquarters on Tuesday evening after an open meeting on Syria at the UN Security Council.
Clinton said “I’m going to be speaking with Sergei Lavrov. He is travelling in Australia.” “I’ve actually travelled in Australia and it’s sometimes difficult to make connections. I don’t think anyone should read anything into that,” Clinton told reporters at the United Nations.
On Tuesday, Lavrov, on a visit to Australia, denied media reports that Clinton could not reach him in order to discuss the Syrian problem. The minister explained that on Tuesday, when he arrived to Australia from New Zealand, he was told that Hillary Clinton would like to talk to him. Lavrov also said that “we will have this conversation at the first opportunity.”
