MOSCOW, January 30, 21:55 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will meet with the head of the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces (NCSROF), Ahmad al-Jarba, in Moscow on February 4, a Russian diplomatic source told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“Such a meeting is planned,” the source said.
Lavrov first met with al-Jarba on January 12 in Paris. Later, they had a conversation on the sidelines of the Geneva II international peace conference on Syria in Switzerland’s Montreux.
Earlier on Thursday, the Russian delegation had a meeting with the leader of the Syrian National Coalition for Revolutionary and Opposition Forces, an informed diplomatic source told Itar-Tass.
“The Russian delegation lead by Russian Permanent Representative at the United Nations office and other international organisations in Geneva Aleksey Borodavkin had a meeting with the leader of the Syrian National Coalition,” the source said.
“Progress of talks (during the international peace conference Geneva II) and possible intermediate relations between Syrian negotiating parties by the end of first round of talks were discussed at the meeting,” the diplomatic source said.
