Russia and the U.S. are not conducting any secret negotiations on Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
"No secret negotiations are being conducted between Russia and the U.S.," Lavrov told a press conference following an RIC meeting at the level of foreign ministers in Moscow on April 18.
"There is a normal regime of working consultations between Russia and the U.S. as co-chairs of the International Syria Support Group and the co-chairs of the two target subgroups created in that group," he said.
He said that "one subgroup is on ceasefire and on the observance of its conditions and the second is on the solution of issues that prevent the delivery of humanitarian assistance in the entire territory of Syria."
"There is considerable progress on both these tracks," the minister said.
