Next Russia-U.S.-UN meeting possible in January

Russia, the U.S. and the UN could hold their meeting on Syria in January.

Russia, the United States and the United Nations could hold their next meeting on Syria in January.

It is possible, said the UN secretary-general's special envoy Staffan de Mistura, responding to a question posed by Interfax, adding that he could not say exactly when the meeting could be held.

The previous such meeting was held in Geneva last Friday. It was held after a long break caused by the general cooling-down in the U.S.-Russia relationship over Ukraine. The current format has now been renewed, however.

De Mistura was speaking ahead of a meeting of the International Syria Support Group due to begin in New York on Dec. 18.
