ISSG Convening in NY to Discuss Syria Crisis

December 18, 2015

We support the idea of convening in New York another meeting of the International Syria Support Group at the ministerial level this Friday, December 18,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after the talks, which also touched on counterterrorism and Ukraine.

He and Kerry said the New York negotiations would lead to a UN Security Council resolution to underpin the process aimed at brokering a ceasefire and political talks between Assad’s regime and Syria’s armed opposition.

In Washington, State Department spokesman John Kirby predicted “the same level of activity and energy” at the New York talks as in two previous rounds among the 17 nations involved in Vienna.
