"[Both men] held a motivated and constructive exchange of views on prospects for resolving the crisis in Syria on the basis of the Geneva communique of June 30, 2012 with the accent on the steps undertaken under the UN auspices to organise consultations with the sides involved aimed at resuming the overwhelming political process," the ministry said.
