Moscow, Russia. In rapidly changing news, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has announced he will be cooperating yet again with the United States in an effort to resolve US-Russian differences over the Syrian crisis.
Moscow is ready to cooperate with the United States on settling the Syrian crisis, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday, a variety of Russian news agencies reported today.
Russian foreign ministry authorities reiterate periodically that they stand ready to renew cooperation with Washington on Syria and fighting terrorism, despite deep seated differences on fundamentals to the ongoing conflict.
Relations between the two countries, however, are seen reaching another low after US fired 59 Tomahawk missiles at Syria to punish Moscow’s ally for its suspected use of poison gas earlier in April. Russia condemned the US action.
Lavrov’s deputy Mikhail Bogdanov also said on Saturday that Russian authorities hope that Syrian armed opposition will take part in Syria peace talks in Kazakhstan’s Astana on May 3-4, Interfax reported. In May Lavrov and US Secretary of State Tillerson are expected to meet in Alaska for further frank and candid talks.
