Lavrov: Date of intra-Syrian talks in Geneva moved to the end of February

Moscow, SANA – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov announced that the date for the resumption of intra-Syria talks in Geneva on Syrian settlement has been moved to the end of February.

Lavrov said at a meeting with Syrian opposition delegation in Moscow that “It is delightful that the announcement of the meeting in Astana served as an impulse for our colleagues in the United Nations to intensify their actions a little bit and announce the resumption of the intra-Syria talks in Geneva, even though this date has been moved again from February 8 to the end of next month.”

Lavrov added Moscow viewed the January 23-24 talks in Astana as “a qualitatively important new step in settlement efforts.”

“An important conclusion was reached in Astana that the Syrian conflict has no military solution,” he said.
