GENEVA, September 9. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday he may hold another meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry next week.
"I don’t know (to the question of what is going on at the talks), we are considering a meeting with my counterpart next week," Lavrov told journalists.
"We have been waiting for an answer from our friends for five hours," he said.
When asked at which point the parties are in terms of the work on the text of a possible agreement, the Russian top diplomat said: "We are here, I have no idea where our friends are." "But I believe it is important for them to agree it with Washington, so I beg your pardon for the delay," he said. "It is important that you are waiting for us as we want you to know the truth, which will be announced very soon, I hope."
"We will have some news before Washington goes to sleep," Lavrov said jokingly. "I am asking you to be patient."
Lavrov and his US counterpart, Secretary of State John Kerry, have been discussing Syrian settlement in Geneva for more than 12 hours already.
US Department of State spokesman John Kirby confirmed earlier that Kerry keeps coordinating Russia’s proposals on Syria with Washington.
