MOSCOW, January 19. /TASS/. The situation in Syria, in Ukraine, the North Korean nuclear problem, as well as a number of bilateral issues will be in focus of a meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry in Switzerland’s Zurich on January 20, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told TASS on Tuesday.
"Lavrov and Kerry will discuss bilateral relations between Russian and the United States, Syria, Ukraine, North Korea and other subjects," he said. "There are many issues of mutual interest for Washington and Moscow. I’ like to remind that the ministers are meeting as was agreed by the two heads of state."
"As for Syria, the ministers will discuss all issues of the Syrian settlement in line with [United Nations Security Council] resolution 2254," Bogdanov said. "They include the launch of intra-Syrian talks, anti-terror efforts, the political process, the humanitarian situation. They will exchange opinions on lists of terrorists."
"And the most importan thing now: if we are committed to begin intra-Syrian talks on January 25, we must seek to settle the outstanding problems," he said. "We hope we will be able to meet the deadline since we must fulfil the resolution [United Nations Security Council resolution 2254]. It says that the talks are to begin in January."
