MOSCOW, May 5 /TASS/. The situation in Syria, including counter-terrorism measures, dominated talks between Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, the Russian president’s Special Representative for the Middle East and Africa, and Syrian Ambassador to Moscow Riyad Haddad on Thursday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"The sides discussed the development of the situation in Syria, including the task of fighting terrorism as well as problems of political settlement of the Syrian crisis in the context of a regular round of the U.N.-mediated inter-Syrian talks that has ended in Geneva," the Russian Foreign Ministry went on to say.
The previous round of the inter-Syrian peace talks took place in Geneva on April 13-28. The U.N. Special Envoy on Syria Staffan de Mistura summed up the delegation’s stances and prepared a document outlined the points of convergence in question of political transition.
The document does not state coordinated positions of the parties. It just enumerates the points of convergence as defined by de Mistura.
A Russian diplomatic source told TASS on Thursday that the inter-Syrian talks could resume in Geneva not earlier than May 20 after the International Syria Support Group meets on May 17, a Russian diplomatic source told TASS.
