BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:18 A.M.) – Russian and French Foreign Ministers Sergei Lavrov and Jean-Marc Ayrault have agreed to cooperate in preparing the intra-Syrian talks in Geneva, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday according to TASS.

“The ministers have agreed that Russian and French representatives will be cooperating to prepare and hold a next round of intra-Syrian talks, due to begin in Geneva on March 23, 2017,” the ministry said in a statement.

Although Lavrov expressed his satisfaction with negotiations in Astana, he did highlight that some militant groups refusing to negotiator only hampered a peaceful solution.

The armed Syrian opposition had refused to attend the talks, “preferring to make speculations about its participation in this event,” Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.

I have great respect for the long suffering French people. They also have the Libtard Slime Balls in control of government. Governments past and present who have encouraged migration to the extent that it has altered for the worst the ethnic makeup of France.

Zionism is the ruin of all nation states where this cancer takes hold.

I just hope that Marine La Pen can bring sanity back to this once great nation.

Actually, both entities deal great together as long as the US do not interfere. We shall not allow such interferences from the DoS “Eurasian affairs dept” again. BTW, it’s interesting that the DoS sees matters in a way many seem to have troubles to conceive due to stupid nationalism. We shall please them : Europe stands between Atlantic ocean and Ural, further it’s Asia and Russia too but at the… Read more »
