Lausanne Meeting on Syria Brings No Results, Sides Agree to Continue Contacts
MOSCOW (Sputnik) Russia does not yet see the prospects of holding Lausanne-format meetings on Syria as long as existing agreements are not fulfilled, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said Monday.

"Frankly, right now I do not see any preconditions for the ministerial meeting. Of course, the ministers are deciding, the situation may change quickly enough. Of course, everything depends on the evolution of the situation on the ground. But, as of today, at issue is the fulfillment of existing arrangements," Ryabkov told reporters.

He added that both Moscow and Damascus are implementing the agreements in full.

The renewal of a humanitarian pause in Syria is off the table after none of the requirements have been met on the ground, Sergey Ryabkov said.

"Nothing of what has been required in the past three days took place, so now the issue of renewing the humanitarian pause is irrelevant," Ryabkov told reporters.

The armed Syrian opposition needs to behave adequately for the return of a humanitarian pause on the ground, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister said.

"The humanitarian pause ended on Saturday. It is clear that in order to return to it, our opponents need to ensure the adequate behavior of anti-government troops that, in particular, disrupted the medical evacuation intended during the preceding humanitarian pause," Ryabkov told reporters.
