PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, January 26, 12:57 /ITAR-TASS/. Any talks are out of place with terrorists in Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with weekly programme Segodnya (Today) on TV channel NTV on Sunday.
“We refuse to have talks and do not recommend other parties to hold talks with them over principled considerations,” Lavrov said. “This is not only our concerns that extremists and terrorists call the tune increasingly in different Syrian regions, but this is also the position of all Group of Eight states,” he added.
“I cannot see such structures as Jebhat an-Nusra, Islamic state of Iraq and Levant and other Al-Qaeda branches in negotiating process,” the minister said.
