MOSCOW, October 13./TASS/. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov marked the importance of the upcoming meeting on Syria, bringing together the foreign ministers of Russia, the US and some other countries, declining to make any forecasts on the results.
"These are expert negotiations, and they are extremely important, as now it is practically the only one remaining platform for an exchange of opinions, for attempts to work out common approaches," he told reporters.
"I would refrain so far from any forecasts to this respect (the results of the talks), the situation is extremely difficult," he said.
The Russian Foreign Ministry reported earlier that Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry will hold ministerial talks on Syria with the participation of key countries of the region to consider possible additional moves to create conditions for the Syrian settlement. Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and possibly Qatar will take part in the meeting in Swiss Lausanne on October 15.
