MOSCOW, August 23 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had a telephone conversation with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday to discuss the situation in Syria.

“Sergei Lavrov and John Kerry agreed that U.N. experts, who were currently staying in Syria, had conducted an objective investigation into a possible use of chemical weapons in Damascus’ suburbs,” the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.

“To this end, Lavrov said, just after Russian government received the information, urged Syrian authorities to cooperate with U.N. experts. Now the matter depends on the opposition, which should get safe access to the area,” the report says.

“We expect the opposition to take a constructive stance on the soonest convocation of the international conference on the Syrian political settlement,” the report says.
