Russian, Chinese Diplomats Discuss Syria in Moscow


A Russian deputy foreign minister met with the Chinese ambassador to Moscow on Wednesday to discuss recent developments in Syria and the chemical-weapons-disarmament deal.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the Russian president’s Middle East envoy, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, and China’s ambassador to Moscow, Li Hui, “confirmed the importance of close [and] efficient coordination between Russia and China on the Syrian issue, within the framework of the UN Security Council and other international institutions.”

According to the ministry, the diplomats discussed the Russian-US agreement under which all chemical weapons in Syria would be made available to international inspectors by November and destroyed by mid-2014.
