"We have a general understanding that the conference should be held in Geneva, where the foundations for the current process were laid, - said the minister, talking to journalists after a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

The Russian foreign minister added that the main thing was for the Syrian opposition and the government to voice readiness to support the initiative of holding this conference.
