UNITED NATIONS, January 07, 6:42 /ITAR-TASS/. The United Nations representatives will stay away from the next meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on the Syrian settlement, according to Farhan Haq, the deputy of the U.N. secretary-general’s official spokesperson.
He also made it clear that no trilateral consultations in the U.N.-Russia-U.S. format would be held after the Lavrov-Kerry meeting.
The United Nations representative said on Monday that Sergei Lavrov and John Kerry would meet on January 13 to discuss Iran’s role in the forthcoming Geneva-2 peace conference for Syria. Later, he told Itar-Tass that he did not know anything about the venue of the Lavrov-Kerry meeting.
Last week, it was announced that the meeting would take place in Paris though neither the U.S. State Department nor the Russian Foreign Ministry have officially confirmed this information.
The day before, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon sent out invitations to the participants in the Geneva-2 conference. The list consists of 30 countries but Iran is not among them.
