MOSCOW, September 22 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavlov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry had a telephone conversation Sunday to discuss practical steps under the Russian-U.S. agreement on placing the Syrian arsenals of chemical weaponry under international control.
The previous telephone conversation of the two ministers devoted to the same issue took place at the end of last week. Kerry said he had spoken to Lavrov about some aspects of cooperation and they had agreed to continue moving towards the adoption of rules and procedures by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, as well as towards adoption of a tough resolution at the UN Security Council.
Work in that area continues, Kerry said.
