MOSCOW, October 13. /TASS/. The Kremlin hopes for positive outcome of Saturday’s meeting on Syria to be held in Lausanne, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said on Thursday.
"We would like the Saturday meeting to yield some concrete positive results," Ushakov said.
He said the coordination of some resolution on Syria will not be on the agenda.
The meeting participants will discuss "what and how should be done together to begin collective efforts at last," Ushakov said.
"This meeting gives a chance to talk about the Russian-US interaction," he added.
Russian and US top diplomats Sergey Lavrov and John Kerry will hold a meeting in Lausanne with representatives of a number of Middle East countries (Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and, probably, Qatar) to consider possible additional steps towards the Syrian conflict resolution.
