MOSCOW, February 9. /TASS/. Moscow and Cairo have been exchanging information about settling the Syrian crisis, Russian Ambassador to Egypt Sergei Kirpichenko said in an interview with TASS.
"Egypt has been actively participating in the efforts aimed at finding a political solution to the Syrian crisis, it has particularly been tackling this issue’s military aspects. Moscow, in turn, welcomes Egypt’s activities, exchanging information with Cairo," the Russian diplomat said.
According to him, information exchange began before the Astana meeting on settling the Syrian crisis and continues ahead of the Geneva meeting.
"Cairo’s activities have been multifaceted, involving not only contacts with the so-called ‘Cairo platform’ of the Syrian opposition but also cooperation with other Arab countries aimed at approving the ways to ensure the ceasefire in Syria and facilitate the search for a political solution," the Russian diplomat stressed.
