MOSCOW, October 3./TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and EU foreign policy chief Frederica Mogherini confirmed on Monday that the Syrian settlement must proceed without unilateral preconditions, the Russian Foreign Ministry reports after a telephone conversation of the two diplomats.
"The Syrian issue was discussed in the conversation," it said.
"The sides confirmed that each direction in efforts towards the Syrian settlement - ensuring the ceasefire, expanding humanitarian access and launching a political process - must be effected, as it is envisaged in UN Security resolutions, without unilateral preconditions and attempts to condition progress in one sphere on progress in another," it said.
