Russia is not in negotiation with the US on the ouster of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said on Tuesday. “No, we are not conducting such negotiations,” he said, as cited by RIA Novosti. A delegation of the US State Department will arrive in Moscow this week to discuss the Syrian conflict. Bogdanov also said that the issue of turning the UN observer mission in Syria into a peacekeeping mission is not on the agenda at present.
