GENEVA, February 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and the United States promised to help unblock the talks between the Syrian government and opposition in Geneva, the Joint Special Envoy of the United Nations and the League of Arab States for the Syrian Crisis, Lakhdar Brahimi, said at a briefing on Thursday, February 13.
He met with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov and U.S. Under Secretary of State Wendy Sherman earlier in the day to discuss the status of the Syrian talks.
He said the trilateral meeting was “very important” and the U.S. and Russia had promised help in reinvigorating the process that was not making much progress.
“The beginning of this week is as laborious as it was in the first week. We are not making much progress. Of course for it to really take off we need cooperation from both sides here and a lot of support from the outside,” Brahimi said.
He said he would go to New York shortly to brief the U.N. Secretary-General and possibly the U.N. Security Council on the situation.
