english.ruvr.ru – What next for Syria talks after Damascus attack?
None of the opposition groups has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry are expected to discuss the situation during the talks in Berlin on February 26. There is not much optimism about the meeting, though.
Victoria Nuland also said that the U.S. urges the opposition to sit down for talks with the regime, adding that the meeting could take place anywhere, including Moscow.
Meanwhile, Russian analysts have different views on how Moscow and Washington could influence the outcome of the Syrian crisis. Boris Dolgov, expert at the Russian Institute of Oriental Studies, believes that the U.S. has been softening its position on the issue with Moscow and Washington having a good potential for finding a common ground for cooperation.
”First of all, Moscow and Washington could agree to stop arms supplies to militants in Syria. Certainly, this would require Russia and the U.S to pressure on both the Syrian government and the opposition to sit down for talks.”

Moscow has denounced the US blocking, at the UN Security Council, of Russia’s draft statement for the press condemning the recent terrorist attack in Damascus.
According to a press release of the Russian Ambassador to the UN, the US delegation has deplorably, for the umpteenth time, vetoed the UN Security Council required reaction to a terrorist attack by tying it with other issues.
Russia sees this kind of effort to justify terrorists’ moves as unacceptable.
