Russia has called on the United States and Great Britain in the past to help set up contacts with the Syrian Free Army in order to set up political dialogue on settling the situation in Syria among all of the opposition organizations and official Damascus.
“Unfortunately, so far our foreign colleagues, first and foremost our American colleagues, have not made any contact, which leads to the thought of what is their actual goal in their actions in Syria through these groups they’re supporting,” Lavrov said during his speech in the Russian lower house of parliament.
The minister noted that Russia was prepared to send prime minister Medvedev, military brass to the United States to coordinate operations in Syria.
The foreign minister also explained why Russia refuses to reconsider its stance on Jebhat al-Nusra — it is a terrorist organization and it is forbidden in Russia.
Lavrov stressed that his American colleagues were "unable" to accept delegation headed by the Russian prime minister.
"Our US colleagues responded that the American delegation would not be going to Russia, and they are unable to meet with our negotiators in Washington".
Russian Foregn Ministry also reminded that Russia had initially called on all countries, including the United States, to coordinate their efforts in the disturbed region.
