MOSCOW, December 5. /TASS/. The foreign ministers of Russia and Egypt, Sergey Lavrov and Sameh Shoukry, have discussed by phone a task of uniting the Syrian opposition that rejects terrorism.
"(The two ministers) have discussed how to coordinate efforts of Russia and Egypt with the aim to unite the Syrian opposition forces rejecting terrorism for the soonest start of an intra-Syrian dialogue as envisioned in the 2012 Geneva communique," the Russian foreign ministry said after the conversation. "The sides underscored a common opinion of the importance to ensure a maximum representative delegation of the opposition (including participants of the meetings which the opposition held in Moscow and Cairo), with the key role of UN Secretary General Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura, for talks with Syria’s government."
The ministers confirmed that Russia and Egypt were eager to "continue intense work at the International Syria Support Group to implement the accords achieved in Vienna, in particular related to making up a unified list of the terrorist groups operating within Syria."
Along with this, Lavrov and Shoukry focused on "certain topical issues aimed at strengthening the multifaceted partnership of Moscow and Cairo.".
