GENEVA, May 17. /TASS/. There is hope that progress will be made at the intra-Syrian talks in Geneva, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said following his meeting with United Nations Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.
"The meeting was very constructive," he said. "There is hope that the political process will receive a new impetus, particularly as far as the work on a new constitution is concerned."
