John Kerry had arrived in Moscow for talks on Syria. 

John Kerry: We hope our talks today will be successful. I want to take this moment to wish you a happy birthday. I hope that this milestone will give you extra wisdom in these negotiations. You look great for 39 years old.

Sergey Lavrov: Thank you, John, but if wisdom is measured by the number of birthdays, I can’t keep up with you.

(Lavrov just turned 66 and Kerry is 72)
