MOSCOW, December 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian presidential special envoy for the Middle East, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov and U.S. Ambassador in Moscow Michael McFaul discussed preparations for the Geneva II Peace Conference, the Foreign Ministry reported on Thursday.

“During the meeting, the top diplomats of both countries discussed key issues of the Middle East settlement with the focus on the preparation of the Geneva II Conference due to take place in Geneva on January 22, 2014,” the report says.

December 20, Russian, U.S. and U.N. diplomats met in Geneva to prepare the Geneva II Peace Conference due to take place on January 22, 2014. Russia was represented by deputies foreign minister, Mikhail Bogdanov and Gennady Gatilov. The U.S. delegation was led by Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sheman. The U.N. delegation was chaired by Special Envoy Lakhdar Brahimi.

In the last six months this was the fifth round of consultations. The previous talks were held on November 25. The parties agreed on the date and the place of the conference: it will be launched in the Swiss city of Montreux on January 22, 2014. However, the parties failed to settle disagreements on two moments — in what format the opposition will be represented and what countries should be invited.
