Kerry says Russia could be 'extremely constructive player' in Syria

NNA – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday that Washington welcomed Russia’s involvement in efforts to end the Syrian conflict, where Moscow could play an “extremely constructive” role.

“We welcome Russia’s engagement in the Syria process. As long as they’re focused on Daesh (Islamic State) and as long they are genuine in wanting to be part of implementing the Geneva (accords), they can be an extremely constructive and important player in reaching a solution,” Kerry said after NATO talks in Brussels.

“I think the world would welcome that kind of cooperative effort,” he said. —AFP
