MOSCOW, March 23. /TASS/. A German diplomatic source has neither confirmed nor denied reports on the possible trilateral meeting of the Russian, German and US top diplomats in Moscow.
"At the moment, there is no such information," he said ahead of the meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier who will hold talks in Moscow on Wednesday. Steinmeier arrived in the Russian capital on Tuesday.
The meeting will focus on the bilateral relations in all areas. The two sides will continue to exchange views on key international issues, including the progress in the implementation of the Minsk agreements, the promotion of the peace process in Syria, European security issues, the fight against international terrorism (which is especially important in light of Tuesday’s terrorist attacks in Brussels), the OSCE issues.
US Secretary of State John Kerry is arriving in Moscow on Wednesday for talks with the Russian leadership. This is his third visit to Russia in less than a year. He came to Russia in May and December 2015.
In Moscow, Kerry will hold talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and will be received by the Russian leader. "A wide range of issues is expected to be discussed during the meeting with the president," Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. He noted that the Syria and Ukraine issues would top the agenda of the meeting.
