TEHRAN (Tasnim) - The fourth round of intra-Syrian talks in Geneva on February 23 - March 3 has outlined a way forward, and forecasts it will fail did not come true, Russia's Ambassador to UN and other international organizations in Geneva Alexei Borodavkin said on Saturday.

Round of Talks in Geneva Outlines Way Forward: Russian Ambassador

"Ill-wishing forecasts failed, as they forecasted the round's non-success, and thus failing of ceasefire," Alexei Borodavkin said, TASS reported.

On the contrary, he continued, "certain progress was achieved at the intra-Syrian talks."

"No doubt, it is useful now the negotiations look more structured," he said pointing to the fact the parties had agreed to have dialogued on four so-called baskets. The first one - on state management, second - on a new constitution, third - on elections, and fourth - on fighting terrorism.

The Russian ambassador stressed the decision on that structuring of the talks "complied fully with the UN Security Council’s Resolution 2254."
