Parties support initiating political process in Syria: Russia

IANS  |  Moscow 

Parties in a multilateral meeting on Syria spoke in favor of initiating political process in the war-raged country as soon as possible, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in a statement.

Participants in the talks held in Lausanne, Switzerland discussed a few "interesting ideas," and they agreed to continue contacts within the next few days "in anticipation of some agreements that will help advance the settlement," Lavrov said

US Secretary of State John Kerry said the meeting was "very constructive" and "sincere" with consensus reached on several issues, including the need to end conflicts in Syria, Xinhua news agency reported.

But the US diplomat also admitted that there were "some tense moments" during their talks, adding that next talks for discussion of following steps were scheduled for October 17.

Foreign ministers of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Jordan and Qatar also participated in the meeting.

The meeting was aimed to restart the political process in Syria, after a ceasefire agreement reached between Moscow and Washington in September which has barely held, with each side accusing the other of failing to fulfill its commitment.
