On January 18, during his visit to New York to attend high-level UNSC meetings chaired by the Republic of Kazakhstan, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov held talks with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

During the review of the most pressing issues on the international agenda, including the situation in Syria and on the Korean Peninsula, Sergey Lavrov and Antonio Guterres stressed that there cannot be an alternative to the search for a political and diplomatic resolution to the current crises. Both parties confirmed their adherence to strict compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on the Iranian nuclear programme.
