The meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Saudi Defense Minister, Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, gives a better understanding of how to move towards political resolution of the Syrian crisis, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said.
"Of course, today's meeting between the president and the crown prince could not resolve all issues related to the Syrian resolution process, but I can firmly say that after today's talks we understand much better how to move towards political resolution," Lavrov said after the talks on Oct. 11.
The political process should fully involve all Syrian groups and social strata and lead to inter-Syrian consensus, he said.
"Certainly, a consensus that will be supported by international community," Lavrov said.
