Moscow, SANA – Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Friday reiterated Russia’s firm stance towards a political solution to the crisis in Syria, adding that “Sadly for us, without meeting reciprocity from the current US administration.”

Sputnik news agency quoted  Peskov as saying that the Russian President Vladimir Putin has made his view clear that it is impossible to settle the crisis in Syria without multilateral cooperation, especially between Russia and the US.

According to the spokesman, the idea of cooperation between Russia and the United states on Syria has long been promoted by Moscow, “sadly for us, without meeting reciprocity from the current US administration.”

Peskov added that “It is premature to say how the new US administration will act, which position it will take” regarding the crisis in Syria and the situation in the whole region.

He said that “Neither the Kremlin nor representatives of the Russian Foreign Ministry have had anything to do with an event in Paris on the situation in Syria, in which US President-elect Donald Trump’s son took part.”

Earlier this week, The Wall Street Journal reported that Donald Trump’s son took part in discussions recently held in Paris to find ways to cooperate with Russia in Syria.
