GENEVA, September 9. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry have resumed talks in Geneva, a source in Russia’s delegation told TASS on Friday.

An hour earlier the top diplomats took a pause in talks.

The meeting began at the President Wilson Hotel at around 10.30 a.m. Moscow time (0730GMT). Ahead of the talks, Lavrov and Kerry voiced concerns over the new nuclear test conducted by North Korea.

The focus of the discussion is Syria. The main intrigue is whether the sides will be able to come to an agreement envisaging, in particular, coordination of actions in the fight against terrorists in war-torn Syria. In addition, the sides will focus on the expansion of humanitarian access, especially around Aleppo, the launch of the intra-Syrian political process. The top diplomats may also discuss the situation in Ukraine and issues of the bilateral agenda.
