Saturday, June 16, 2012

Russia has again called for an international conference on Syria which it believes should involve all the key players in the region.

This kind of forum could help end the bloodshed and kickstart the process of a political settlement in Syria, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the UN and Arab League special envoy to Syria, Kofi Annan, in a telephone conversation earlier today, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry.

During the conversation which was held at Annan’s initiative, the UN and Arab League envoy supported the adoption of an international approach to the settlement of the Syrian crisis.
