“It’s clear that it’s not possible to deal with these problems efficiently without the US. Thus, we’re keeping and will keep in touch with our American partners and I hope we will reach agreement on joint steps in this very important and very sensitive issue for international relations today,” he said, RT reports.
There are big problems within Syrian society and “our task is to create conditions to unite the people, to end the hostilities and mutual annihilation and to create the conditions for the political cooperation of all warring parties.”
