MOSCOW, August 30. /TASS/. Moscow would like to see the United States’ greater readiness for real cooperation over Syrian settlement, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has told the media.

"We are still far away from real cooperation, to our regret," Peskov said. "As before, we would like to see the United States’ greater readiness for real cooperation, in other words, for taking our cooperation not just to the level of information exchanges or sporadic interaction, but a level of full-fledged cooperation, without which a settlement of the gravest Syrian problem would be impossible."

Asked for a comment on a statement by US foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes to the effect the window of opportunities for cooperation between Russia and the United States over Syria was closing Peskov said: "All signals were made in Geneva last Friday. All detailed discussions have been held and all detailed messages expressed by our foreign minister."

On August 26-27 in Geneva Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had twelve hours of talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry. Lavrov said that Russia and the United States would present a document on Syria and very few issues were still to be settled to put final touches to it.
