VIENNA, May 16. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is holding a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Vienna.
Lavrov arrived in Vienna earlier on Monday. On Tuesday, he will attend consultations of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG). Apart from that, the Russian top diplomat is expected to take part in a ministerial meeting on Nagorno-Karabakh due to take place on Monday evening.
Lavrov and Kerry greeted each other heartily but preferred not to make any statement ahead of their closed-door meeting.
"Before this Vienna meeting, Lavrov told journalists he is in a great mood and Russia’s position is clear and honest, and we have nothing to be ashamed of," Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on her Facebook account.
There has been no official announcement about what Lavrov and Kerry plan to discuss. However they will obviously speak about the situation in Syria. Apart from that, they are certain to discuss the situation in Ukraine following a meeting of the Normandy Four (Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine) foreign ministers on May 11. It is not ruled out that they might raise the issue of the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement ahead of a meeting of the Armenian and Azerbaijani presidents.
