MOSCOW, May 5. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry had a phone conversation on Tuesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The conversation was requested by the American side.
The two top diplomats "discussed the tasks to promote settlement in Syria and Yemen, certain aspects of the situation in Donbas in the context of the Ukrainian crisis, as well as separate issues of bilateral relations," the statement said.
Lavrov and Kerry have maintained regular contacts through holding both personal meetings and phone talks. The current conversation was the third one over less than a month. The previous talks took place April 29. They focused on Ukraine, in particular, the necessity to form working subgroups within the framework of the Contact Group as soon as possible.
Before that, the Russian foreign minister and the US secretary of state spoke by phone on April 13, paying particular attention to the situation around talks on Iran’s nuclear program and the conflict in Yemen.
