GENEVA, September 10. /TASS/. The pizza that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov gave to journalists as they were expecting the end of talks on Syria was presented to him by the US delegation to apologize for the prolonged pause in negotiations, Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on her Facebook page on Saturday.

Russian-US talks on Syria lasted for over 13 hours thus breaking the record of the Moscow meeting from July 15.

It was earlier reported that Lavrov brought several pizzas to journalists, and was met with applause. One of the journalists jokingly asked: "And where is vodka?" Later Lavrov came out again and presented reporters with a bag with two bottles of vodka. "Pizza is from the US delegation, vodka - from the Russian delegation," he said.

Zakharova wrote on her Facebook that Kerry sent pizza to Lavrov "to apologize for the 9-hour long pause in talks caused by US delegation’s coordination of the progress in talks with Washington." She added that one of Western journalists asked for vodka as well.
