Newscast Media NEW YORK—Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his U.S. counterpart John Kerry announced Friday they agreed to convene a new meeting on Syria in New York on the sidelines of the activities of the UN General Assembly due to kick off later this month.

"Kerry understands the necessity to make progress in finding a political solution to the crisis in Syria," Lavrov told a press conference following a tripartite meeting in Geneva with Kerry and UN Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi.

He described the meeting as "fruitful" and pointed out that Brahimi called for discussing the long-term prospects to find a political solution to the crisis which were stated in the statement issued by the international conference on Syria, held last year in Geneva.

For his part, Kerry highlighted the need for work to make successful the process of placing the chemical weapons in Syria under international control and to put an end to the crisis.

Reuters said Kerry described the ongoing talks about chemical weapons in Syria as constructive.      Add Comments>>
