GENEVA, January 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian and American experts agreed at their meeting in Geneva on Wednesday, January 29, to put pressure on the Syrian sides to prod them into reaching a compromise, an informed diplomatic source told Itar-Tass.
“The participants agreed to put pressure on the Syrian sides to make them move towards a compromise,” the source said. “Discussed were political and humanitarian issues as well as questions concerning the second round of inter-Syrian talks to begin after January 31.”
“When the Syrian delegations go to the consultations, they should have a homework assignment so that eventually they could achieve an agreement. A possible agenda of the second round was discussed at the meeting of experts,” the source said.
An official in the Russian delegation told Itar-Tass earlier that the meeting was aimed at holding “a detailed discussion on how to resolve the crisis in Syria.”
