    Lavrov and Ban discussed the humanitarian situation in Syria, preparations for intra-Syrian peace talks, and the implementation of the UNSC anti-Daesh resolution.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon held a phone talk, discussing the situation in Syria, Russia's Foreign Ministry said Friday.

    On December 17, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution to counter the financing of terrorism.

    Russia and the United States co-sponsored the 2253 UNSC resolution that expanded the so-called Al-Qaeda Sanctions List to include Daesh as a separate entity instead of an al-Qaeda affiliate.

    The document calls for groups such as Daesh and the al-Qaeda affiliate the al-Nusra Front to be prevented from benefiting from the sale oil and antiquities and from the ransoming of hostages, as well as from receiving donations.
