Kerry’s visit to Sochi to meet with Russian FM Lavrov ‘symbolic itself’

US State Secretary John Kerry is set visit Russia’s city of Sochi on May 12 and is expected to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov to discuss the situation in Ukraine, Yemen, Syria and Iran.

SOCHI (Sputnik) — Moscow does not expect any breakthrough results from US State Secretary’s visit to Moscow, but the fact that he will visit Russia is symbolic and important, a diplomatic source told RIA Novosti Monday.
“Kerry’s visit is very symbolic itself. He cancelled his trip many times, and finally decided to come. This meeting will not be a breakthrough, but it is very important. This visit was delayed of his own initiative. We never shut ourselves off, we are open and ready to discuss everything,” the source said.
