Moscow is ready to cooperate with the United States on settling the Syrian crisis, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Saturday, Russian news agencies reported.

Russian authorities reiterate periodically that they stand ready to renew cooperation with Washington on Syria and, more globally, on fighting terrorism, Reuters reported.

Relations between the two countries, however, are seen reaching another low after US fired missiles at Syria to punish Moscow’s ally for its suspected use of poison gas earlier in April. Russia condemned the US action.

Lavrov’s deputy, Mikhail Bogdanov, also said on Saturday that Russian authorities hope that Syrian armed opposition will take part in Syria peace talks in Kazakhstan’s Astana on May 3-4, Interfax reported.
