Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday he would meet Syrian opposition leaders in Moscow next week to discuss the possibility of ending violence in the country.
"We will use this coming meeting with yet another Syrian opposition group to continue work to end violence and start Syrian dialogue between the government and all groups of the Syrian opposition as soon as possible," Lavrov said at a briefing with his Vietnamese counterpart Pham Binh Minh.
