Kerry meets Lavrov on sidelines of OSCE in Belgrade

Dec 09, 2015 United States Secretary of State John Kerry and Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov recently met on the sidelines of a two-day OSCE conference in Belgrade.

The two-day meeting, which was also attended by European Union Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini and other foreign ministers, featured discussions on the migrant crisis in Europe, the war in Syria and the threat from Islamic State.

The Russian foreign minister also reportedly had a closed-door meeting with his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavosoglu. The meeting marked the first direct dialogue between Russian and Turkish representatives, since a Russian jet was downed by Turkey in late November.
