ST PETERSBURG, June 30 (Itar-Tass) — Participants in an international conference on Syria in Geneva have a real chance “to find a common denominator”, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after the talks with U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday.
He noted that at the meeting with Clinton he felt changes in the United States’ position on Syria.
“I’ve heard one experienced politician, diplomat saying he understands our position and we reciprocated,” he said. “We’ve agreed to search for such agreements that would bring us together on the basis of a clear understanding as prescribed in the Annan plan.”
At the same time Lavrov expressed confidence that the observer mission should continue its work in Syria and it can be enlarged.
