MOSCOW, September 9. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had a telephone conversation with the US Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday.
"The conversation focused on the problem of peace settlement of the conflict in Syria and certain aspects of Russian-American bilateral relations, the Foreign Ministry in Moscow said. "A road to it lies through a dialogue between the government in Damascus and the opposition," a ministry official said.
"Sergey Lavrov once again highlighted the significance of a consolidated rebuffing of terrorist groupings that have seized a sizable part of the Syrian territory and are threating international security," he said. "The Syrian army is bearing the brunt of the burden in the struggle with them."
"Lavrov and Kerry also discussed some other items on the international agenda," the spokesman said.
