Russian Foreign Ministry: US Avoiding Discussion Over Syria With Moscow

Diplomacy not even an option?


Russian Foreign Ministry accused on Wednesday the United Statesof steadily avoiding direct contacts with Moscow over developments around Syria.

"Commencing Saturday, August 31, the U.S. State Department repeatedly requested phone call with (Russian Foreign Minister) Sergei Lavrov. Although we have constantly confirmed it, the U.S. side every time informed us there was no possibility to get through to the Secretary of State," ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich told reporters.
