Washington, Moscow and key regional players who met in Switzerland for Syria peace talks have decided to “prolong contacts,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Saturday.
“We agreed that we must prolong our contacts over the coming days while taking into account certain accommodations that can help promote peace in Syria,” he said at the close of the talks.
It was not clear whether that meant further meetings or discussions by phone.
Lavrov also told Russian agencies that the parties at the talks had discussed several “interesting ideas” and that they had spoken in favor of launching a political process in Syria as soon as possible.
After more than four hours of talks, ministers left the city’s upmarket lakeside Beau-Rivage hotel without making any comments.
