MOSCOW, March 16. /TASS/. US State Secretary John Kerry’s visit to Moscow is very likely to take place, and the possibility of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin is under consideration, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.
"In fact, the visit of [US] State Secretary Kerry is being coordinated and is very likely to take place in Moscow where he will have contacts with his Russian colleagues, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov," Peskov said adding that "the possibility of Mr Kerry’s meeting with the Russian president is under consideration."
"Of course, we, from the Russian side, are traditionally ready to discuss the most pressing issues, first of all, Syria, our efforts and coordination of our joint efforts in promoting the peaceful process of settlement," the Kremlin spokesman added. He added that "Moscow will also be ready to exchange opinions on the implementation, or non-implementation, of the Minsk Agreements by the Ukrainian side."
Answering a question on whether Russian-US relations improved after Putin made a decision to withdraw main part of the Russian aviation task force from Syria, Peskov said: "The main thing now is to coordinate efforts on promoting peaceful process of settlement in Syria." "In this case, readiness to coordinate efforts is definitely satisfactory, and this is what the main work of both Moscow and Washington is currently focused on," the Kremlin spokesman added.
Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told "Govorit Moskva" radio station earlier on Wednesday that the visit of US State Secretary John Kerry to Moscow will focus on the settlement in Syria. The diplomat noted that the visit of the US state secretary to Russia is currently being coordinated. "Of course, the main topic of the visit which we are coordinating, will be devoted to Syria," Zakharova said.
Kerry said on Tuesday that he will make a visit to Moscow next week where he hopes to hold a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
