MOSCOW, July 2. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry discussed in a phone conversation on Saturday the possible cooperation of Moscow and Washington in the fight against terrorists in Syria, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said.
The conversation was held at the initiative of the US side. "The discussion was on the ways of settling the Syrian conflict, including the possibilities of the Russian-US cooperation in the fight against terrorist groups active in Syria," the ministry said.
Lavrov and Kerry also focused on the issues concerning further steps of co-chairs of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE)’s Minsk Group (Russia, France, the US) on the settlement in Nagorno-Karabakh following the meeting of the presidents of Russia, Armenia and Azerbaijan in St. Petersburg on June 20.
On June 30, the Washington Post reported that the Obama administration has proposed a new deal on Syria to the Russian government that "would deepen military cooperation between the two countries against some terrorists." According to Stratfor, a US company providing strategic analysis and forecasting, this initiative could envisage a range of concessions from Russia.
