DAMASCUS, February 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov described his trip to Damascus ordered by President Dmitry Medvedev as ‘timely and useful.’
“We have all grounds to believe that our message of the need to make rapid progress in all spheres will be heard,” he said upon a meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Asad.
“Moscow thinks that efforts to resolve the Syrian crisis must go on,” Lavrov said. Russia will continue its active work, including the interaction with Syria, its neighbors and the League of Arab States, he said.
Lavrov and Russian Foreign Intelligence Service Mikhail Fradkov started their working visit to Syria on Tuesday morning. Following negotiations with the Syrian leaders, they went to the airport for the soonest departure to Moscow.
