Lavrentiev: Russia insists on not prolonging cross-border aid delivery mechanism in Syria, as this mechanism has exceeded its usefulness

Nur Sultan, SANA-Russian President’s Special Envoy to Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev stressed that his country insists on not prolonging the so-called “cross-border aid delivery mechanism” in Syria, as this mechanism has exceeded its usefulness.

In a statement to Journalists on the sidelines of the 16th international meeting in Astana format  on Syria which has started its activities earlier today in the Kazakh capital Nur Sultan , Lavrentiev said that “we, of course,  insist on folding this mechanism and on not prolonging its work as it exceeded its usefulness.”

The latest summit held between the Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Joe Paden in Geneva was “constructive and very encouraging” as the most important issue is that the two sides agreed and instructed the experts to hold separate consultations on the issues proposed now on the agenda and which concern the leaders of the two countries, among them the situation in Syria, Lavrentiev went on saying.

The Russian diplomat pointed out that Russia will discuss during the current meeting in Astana format with the UN special envoy for Syria Geir Pedersen the continuation of the work of the Committee of Discussing the Constitution, indicating that all conditions to continue its work have been prepared.
