MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. The Geneva talks on Syria will resume on February 23, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov confirmed on Thursday while opening a meeting with United Nations Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.
"Russia supports efforts aimed at implementing the UN Security Council Resolution 2254," the Russian top diplomat added. "We have been trying, together with our Iranian and Turkish counterparts, to help ensure the ceasefire between the government forces and the opposition units on most of the Syrian territory."
Lavrov also said that Russia sought to advance the process of drafting a new Syrian constitution. The Russian foreign minister expressed hope that de Mistura’s meetings in Moscow "will facilitate the preparations for the Geneva talks scheduled for February 23, when Russia will mark the Defender of the Fatherland Day," Lavrov said.
