Lavrov and Tillerson Set to Meet Next Week

US Embassy and Consulates in Russia

A senior State Department official informed that the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is scheduled to meet Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Vienna next week, Radio Free Europe reports.

The meeting is set to take place on the sidelines of an Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) meeting in the Austrian capital, most likely on December 7.

"There is a meeting that’s been scheduled with Foreign Minister Lavrov," said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

"We have a fairly robust set of discussions under way with the Russians on a lot of global issues -- [North Korea], Ukraine, and certainly Syria," the official said when asked if Tillerson would address the six-year civil war in Syria during his upcoming European trip.

Tillerson is scheduled to travel to Brussels, Vienna, and Paris on December 4-8 for NATO, European Union, and OSCE meetings.
