MOSCOW, April 29. /TASS/. The situation in the negotiations process on Syria is very tense and requires energetic efforts from all sides, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday.
"Work is intense though we in fact state that the situation in the negotiations process is very tense," Peskov said. "It definitely requires very energetic efforts from all sides," he added.
Russia consistently supports the continuation of negotiations process in Geneva, the Kremlin spokesman noted. "We think that it is principally important for Syrian settlement and has no alternatives. Russia is absolutely open for cooperation with other interested countries, probably, first of all, with US," he said adding that in this case, contacts continue.
The spokesman noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin does not plan to hold a meeting with UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura. "No such meeting is included in the president’s schedule," he said.
