The Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Vershinin discussed with Pedersen the tasks of strengthening the political solution process led and implemented by the Syrians themselves.
In the statement, Vershinin pointed to “the importance of conducting an objective assessment of the situation in various regions of Syria, and of continuing to provide depoliticized humanitarian assistance, in strict accordance with the United Nations mandate stipulated in UN Security Council Resolution No. 2254.”
