Post-war Iraqi issues, the Arab-Israeli conflict, implementation of the road map elaborated by the "four" of international mediators and the whole course of Middle East issues topped the agenda of the negotiations between the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Saltanov and Syrian Foreign Minister Farouk al-Shara and other high-ranking Syrian Foreign Ministry officials.
