MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov insisted in a phone call with US State Secretary John Kerry on Friday that the Syrian-Turkish border must be completely closed to curb the flow of terrorist reinforcements to Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

"Sergei Lavrov reiterated that the Turkey-Syria border remains 'full of holes' and is actively used to bring terrorists to Syria via Turkey," the ministry said in a statement.

"He insisted that the border must be sealed, and urged a quick coordination of all necessary measures, including on the part of the UN Security Council, to resolve this issue," the statement said.

According to the ministry, Lavrov and Kerry also reaffirmed plans to continue support of talks between the Syrian government and the entire spectrum of the Syrian opposition under the UN aegis to ensure the success of the political settlement of the Syrian crisis.
