GENEVA, July 26. /TASS/. United Nations Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura said on Tuesday the trilateral Russia-US-UN talks on Syria in Geneva have yielded certain progress.
He said the talks focused on the necessity of the soonest progress in cessation of hostilities, ensuring humanitarian access, anti-terrorist efforts and conditions for political transition.
He noted that the Geneva consultations coincided with a meeting between Russian and U.S. top diplomats, Sergei Lavrov and John Kerry, in Laos, who discussed mays of enhancing mutual understanding reached in Moscow and concrete steps on that track.
Despite the certain progress of the Geneva talks, de Mistura said more details are to be looked at in the next several days and hailed Russia’s and U.S.’ role in it.
"Our aim is to proceed with a third round of intra-Syrian talks towards the end of August," the U.N. envoy stressed, adding that there is a "sense of urgency" to resume negotiations amid growing violence in Syria.
