Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday he hoped that the US administration of President-elect Donald Trump would join the international peace talks on the resolution of the ongoing Syrian conflict.




“I would like to express my hope that after the administration of Donald Trump assumes its duties, it will also join the efforts [on the Syrian conflict settlement] in order to channel this work into one direction basing on friendly and collective cooperation,” Lavrov said during a meeting with Vladimir Putin. 


Earlier in the day Vladimor Putin announced that long-awaited agreements on the ceasefire in Syria had been achieved.
