DOHA, August 3. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who met with his counterparts from the United States and Saudi Arabia, John Kerry and Adil Al-Jubayr, in Qatar’s capital city Doha on Monday, said he hoped Washington and Riyadh will help settle the crisis in Syria.
When the ministers were shaking hands, an American journalist several times literally shouted out a question to the Russian foreign minister asking him what Russia would do to settle the situation in Syria.
"I hope these persons will offer their help," he said obviously referring to Kerry and Al-Jubayr. The three men laughed.
The journalists wanted to know what kind of held Lavrov meant. "Concrete," he said. And efficient, added U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
