"Russia and the United States have expressed readiness for progressing on a technical level for revealing the side responsible for violating the ceasefire," Steinmeier told reporters at the close of the meeting.
Aссording to the minister, all sides to the Syrian conflict are willing to invite UN special envoy for Syria to restart the intra-Syrian talks in Geneva "as soon as possible," Steinmeier said.
"The sides have contradictions, different views on the situation in Syria <…> and we have to overcome these contradictions to move closer to a political solution. This is what we discussed today, essentially studying the weak points, in order to return to the talks in Geneva," Steinmeier told reporters.
"There is a willingness from all the sides to support this path, and to invite UN special representative to Geneva as soon as possible for the continuation of the negotiations," the German minister added.
Tuesday’s "constructive" debates allowed the sides to study the contentious points should once again be raised in Geneva," Steinmeier outlined.
