    Russia favors next round of the intra-Syrian talks to be held on May 30, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told Sputnik.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia would like the next round of the intra-Syrian talks to be held on May 30, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov told Sputnik.

    On Tuesday, a Syrian opposition source told Sputnik that the next round of the Syrian proximity talks would take place on May 30 in the Swiss city of Montreux.

    "We would like [the talks to be held on May 30], because we support the idea of accelerating the political process in order to save time," Bogdanov said.

    According to the official, the Russian side is waiting for the announcement on the issue from UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura.

    On Tuesday, Bogdanov said that the talks would resume no earlier than after the holy month of Ramadan, which ends July 5 this year.
