US, Russia agree on Syria probe

April 13, 2017

The US and Russia are attempting to work together on an investigation of the Syria gas attacks.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says after holding talks with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson some progress has been made on Syria and a working group would be set up to examine the poor state of US-Russia ties.

Lavrov, addressing a news conference on Wednesday, said President Vladimir Putin had said Moscow was ready to restore an air safety agreement covering Syria which it had suspended after last week's US missile strikes on Syria.

Moscow and Washington had also agreed to continue cooperating to try to find a political solution for Syria, he said.
