The timeframe for a meeting of Foreign Ministers of Russia, Syria and Turkey has not been negotiated yet, but consultations on this issue continue, says Mikhail Bogdanov, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister and Special Presidential Representative for the Middle East and Africa.
"We are working on the issue of holding a ministerial meeting; we held consultations with delegations from Syria and Iran, and in contact with our Turkish partners through the embassies. This work continues. But there is no timeframe yet," the official told TASS.
Meanwhile, Bogdanov said that expert consultations of Russia, Turkey and Syria are planned for February.
After the December 28 meeting, Defense Ministers of the three countries said that they "intend to hold the first expert meeting in this format in February," Bogdanov said.
On Thursday, Turkish Minister of National Defense said that military delegations of Turkey, Russia and Syria will hold technical-level negotiations shortly.
