In Moscow began talks Lavrov and Kerry

The talks of Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry has begun in Moscow.

It is expected that the meeting will be the situation in Syria and the prospects of unification of efforts to combat international terrorism. Following the talks, the foreign Ministers of the two countries is expected to be adopted by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

On the eve of Kerry's visit, the Russian side indicated that she has a number of questions to Washington's position on these issues.

"When defining areas for joint U.S.-we, as before, guided solely by their own interests, including the challenge of strengthening its international security. This fully applies to the Syrian issue, on which Washington seeks support for American approaches, not always fit with international law. During tomorrow's talks in Moscow hope to gain from the Secretary of state the necessary explanations," — said on Monday the Russian foreign Ministry.

The Russian foreign Ministry reported that, in particular, will seek from the U.S. administration's revision to the policy, based on the desire to divide terrorists into "bad" and "good". "We count on a business conversation with U.S. Secretary of state", — stressed the foreign Ministry.

In Washington, in turn, reported that the Secretary of state will once again try to persuade Russia to join the international coalition led by the United States.

"He (Kerry — ed.) goes with the expectation that there will be preconditions for holding this meeting and negotiations," said assistant Secretary of the USA John Kirby.

The American side acknowledges the importance of Russia for resolving the Syrian crisis.

"The progress that has been made on the diplomatic front, could not be achieved without meaningful participation of Russian... Constructive participation of Russia in the negotiations (on Syria) has so far been useful, and I'm sure it will be part of the debate (Kerry in Moscow — ed.)", — said the official representative of the White house Josh Ernest.
