MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The work on settlement of the Syrian crisis has to go on, because events in the war-torn country are developing "rapidly," Peskov said in an interview with the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper.
"At the moment the United States have an incumbent president and he will be in office for two more months. For example the events in Syria are developing so rapidly that no one could afford a two-month pause. That's why the work will go on," he said.
Trump won the US presidential election on Tuesday with 290 electoral votes against his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton's 232. The presidential inauguration will be held on January 20, 2017.
On Friday, Peskov also said that the Syrian civil war was a "burning issue" and Moscow cannot wait several months before the January inauguration and would continue to cooperate with Obama's administration at the moment.
