UNITED NATIONS (UNITED STATES) (AFP) –
US Secretary of State John Kerry met with his Russian opposite number on Friday and made what he said was “a little bit of progress” on resolving their differences over the Syrian crisis.
“We’re evaluating some mutual ideas in a constructive way, period,” Kerry told reporters at the United Nations, one day after international envoys failed to find a way to revive a US and Russian-brokered truce.
UNITED NATIONS (UNITED STATES) (AFP) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the United Nations on Friday that US-Russian agreements aimed at ending the war in Syria must be salvaged as fighting raged on the ground.
Lavrov told the General Assembly that there was “no alternative” to the Russian and US-led peace process and said: “Now it is essential to prevent a disruption of these agreements.”
