"The word 'changes' is not ours. We don't use it. Mr. De Mistura spoke about the optimization."
Moscow hosted two rounds of intra-Syrian talks in January and April. During the second round of talks the sides agreed on a 10-point agenda, defining a negotiating framework for the talks on the Syrian crisis settlement.
During the talks in Geneva, Moscow is represented by Permanent Representative of Russia to the United Nations Alexei Borodavkin.
