As John Kirby, spokesman for United States Department of State, makes no signals around the situation in Middle East which discussed at the latest meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry in Vienna. “The situation in Iraq and in Syria often comes up, the fight against ISIL. But I don’t have any decisions to read out from a result of this latest meeting”, - said Kirby.

The two-hour long meeting between Lavrov and Kerry, their fourth this year, was related to Iran nuclear negotiations, and focused on the fight against terrorism in West Asia.

Minister Lavrov, speaking to reporters after the meeting, said that they agreed to try to arrange broader consultations with participation of the states from the region, and it should take place in the nearest future.

Alexei Mukhin, political analyst and the general director of the independent Center for Political Information, commented on the meeting between Lavrov and Kerry.

"While certain countries continue buying oil from ISIS, while weapons are flowing into ISIS territory, unfortunately it will be impossible to stop its expansion,” says Mukhin.

When asked by Daily Press about the date and place for these discussions, Mr. Kirby admitted that there is no data on the precise  schedule and format of the event.

“No, I don’t have anything in terms of schedule to announce here, or even that – agreement that those kinds of talks would be held”, - said Kirby.
