MOSCOW, July 13. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will receive US Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in the afternoon on July 14, they plan to discuss the situation in Syria and Ukraine, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.
"I can say now that Putin will receive US Secretary of State (John) Kerry and (Russian) Foreign Minister (Sergey) Lavrov in late afternoon on Thursday (July 14). The issues due to be discussed are predictable enough. These are Syria, Ukraine and bilateral relations," Peskov said.
He added that the two top diplomats will brief Putin on the results of their talks.

Kerry is arriving in Moscow on July 14. He is to hold talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
