Russia’s statement on the Geneva conference caught attention due to its publication at a time in which efforts for the cessation of the conflict in Syria are ongoing in the international arena.

Over the past week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had many telephone conversations with U.S. counterpart John Kerry regarding the conference to take place in Geneva.

On the other hand, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the alleged attacks by the Al Nusra Front on Syria’s Kurds increase the importance of the second Geneva conference.

Lavrov stated that the official Syrian government has agreed to send a delegation to the conference without preconditions.
