MOSCOW, June 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov and Syria’s Ambassador to Russia Riad Haddad met on Tuesday to discuss the task of concerted action by the international community in fight against terrorism, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported after the meeting.
The sides “discussed the development of the situation in Syria and in the Middle East region on the whole,” they added. “Particular attention was paid to the task of an early political settlement of the Syrian crisis and concerted effort by the international community in fight against a global threat of terrorism,” it said.
Bogdanov, who is also Russian president’s envoy for the Middle East, and Riad Haddad also “touched upon certain aspects of giving a boost to Russian-Syrian bilateral cooperation,” the ministry said.
