    Russia expects more active actions from the United States for the effective coordination in a fight against Daesh and al-Nusra Front, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the deputy foreign minister, Moscow hopes that the State's more active role in the coordinated fight against terrorists will also forward the Geneva talks on Syria.

    "Russia still awaits more active actions from the US partners that would eventually allow to coordinate the efforts in the fight against Daesh and al-Nusra while creating the preconditions to continue the respective talks in Geneva under the coordination role of [UN Special Envoy for Syria] Staffan de Mistura," Ryabkov told RIA Novosti.

    The deputy foreign minister also said that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry will hold a meeting in the capital of Laos, Vientiane, on July 26.

    "The meeting will be held on July 26 in Vientiane," Ryabkov told RIA Novosti.

    The two will meet on the sidelines of the annual events within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) forum.
