  • Kono calls for framework to aid Syria

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will also hold bilateral talks, including on the "escalating situation" around the Iran nuclear deal, spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.

Mutual ties, in particular the banking relations, as well as cooperation in various regional and global issues and the latest developments in Syria were discussed during the meeting.

The foreign minister said that when addressing the Syria crisis, a top priority is on evacuees and refugees, calling for continued assistance to them.

Russia, Iran and Turkey are the guarantor states in the so-called Astana process aimed at ending the violence in Syria.

The United States is trying to divide Syria into parts.

Mogherini has also said that support for the Syrian population both in and outside of Syria must be stepped up and can not see more shortfalls in the global community's attempts to bolster aid for Syrians that are in need.

The top Iranian diplomat further praised Russian Federation for its support for Iran on worldwide area, in particular, in implementation of the nuclear deal reached between Tehran and the six world powers in 2015.


Russian President Vladimir Putin hosted a summit on Syria with the Iranian and Turkish presidents in November.

The joint attack on April 14 targeted suspected chemical weapons infrastructure following an alleged gas attack by government forces on the formerly rebel-held town of Douma, outside Damascus.

Meanwhile, Russia says the attack was staged to discredit Assad.

Russia, Turkey and Iran have been planning how to carve up Syria among the coalition, as western nations continue to press for a seat at the negotiating table.

Speaking to reporters on Saturday upon his arrival in Moscow for a ministerial meeting, Zarif described the Astana process as the only initiative that has resulted in actual reduction of tensions in Syria.

They then met again in Ankara this month.
