MANILA, August 6. /TASS/. Russia calls on external players in Syria to synchronize their efforts with the Syrian parties to find further compromises on the settlement of the crisis, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Sunday after his meeting with US Secretary of State RexTillerson on the sidelines of ASEAN events in Manila.
"It will not be an easy job to agree parameters of the de-escalation zone in Iblib. Probably, it is the most difficult out of the four zones agreements on which were reached by Russia, Turkey and Iran in Astana in May," he said. "We proceed from the fact that these three, as well as other players, including the United States, have influence on all armed groups, militants, naturally, with the exception of terrorists who will never be covered by the agreements."
"If we - Russia, Turkey, Iran and the US-led coalition - all together, synchronously, use our influence on concrete players who confront each other on the ground with weapons in their hands, new compromise solutions will be found to promote the ceasefire and create conditions for political process," the Russian top diplomat stressed.
