U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's proposal to hold talks on Syria with participation of Russia is not about holding a summit, or highest-level talks, the Kremlin said.

"No, it's not the highest level [talks]," Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

All further questions should be addressed to the Russian foreign ministry, Peskov said.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said earlier that he plans to discuss the Syrian situation with Russia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Jordan. A source in the Russian foreign ministry confirmed to Interfax that they are aware of the U.S. initiative, saying that they are studying it now.
