GENEVA, March 29. /TASS/. Russia is ready for contacts with US officials on Syria in Geneva and a meeting may take place on Wednesday, Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said.
"There are such plans," Gatilov said, answering a reporter’s question about his plans to hold consultations with US Special Envoy for Syria Michael Ratney in Geneva. "If the United States shows interest, we are ready to meet."
The Russian senior diplomat did not rule out that the meeting might take place later on Wednesday.
"Maybe," he said, noting that the US continued to play a major role in resolving the Syrian crisis.
On Monday, Gatilov arrived in the Swiss capital to have consultations with participants in the intra-Syrian peace talks.
