GENEVA, February 14. /ITAR-TASS/. The Syrian government’s delegation is not planning to stop talks within the Geneva II Peace Conference, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Friday.
“My talks with Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem proved that the Syrian government delegation was ready to continue talks in Geneva,” the Russian diplomat said.
However, he said the inter-Syrian talks did not reach a deadlock. “In its essence the talks haven’t started yet,” Gatilov added.
Commenting on the next round of inter-Syrian talks, the Russian diplomat said UN/LAS Special Envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi should hold consultations with the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon.
The Russian diplomat also said the humanitarian situation in Syria was very difficult. “Russia is doing its best to improve the situation,” he added.
