 Tillerson, Lavrov to hold first meeting on sidelines of G20 foreign ministers's gathering

The situation in Syria is likely to be the key topic of the meeting.

A meeting is planned between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the sidelines of a gathering of G20 foreign ministers in Germany, Censor.NET reports citing Reuters quoting Russian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

"A meeting is planned and being worked out," she said at a news briefing.

As reported, Zakharova did not say what Lavrov and Tillerson planned to address in their meeting, but earlier comments from the Foreign Ministry suggested Syria would be a topic of discussion.

It will be the first time Lavrov meets his newly appointed counterpart following the election of U.S. President Donald Trump.
