NEW YORK, September 26. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will have a meeting with Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro in New York later on Saturday, a source with the Russian delegation told TASS.
Lavrov arrived in New York on Friday to attend the UN General Assembly session, on the sidelines of which he is expected to have talks with the U.S. secretary of state, secretary generals of the United Nations, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) and the Arab League along with the foreign ministers of Germany, Syria and Greece.
"A meeting with Venezuela’s president is planned to be held before noon," the source said.
The sides agreed to move the talks, which were expected earlier to take place in Caracas, to New York where Venezuela’s top delegation headed after a breakthrough in resolving the intra-Columbian conflict.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry said that bilateral agenda and certain international issues of mutual interest would top the talks of Lavrov and Maduro.
