Moscow: International Syria envoy Lakhdar Brahimi will fly to Moscow on Saturday for talks with Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov on how to end Syria’s 21-month-old conflict, a Russian foreign ministry spokesman said.
Syrian diplomats earlier on Thursday entered the Russian Foreign Ministry in Moscow to discuss proposals for a peaceful resolution to the crisis following a diplomatic push by Brahimi in Damascus this week.
Plans made by Brahimi to broker a peaceful transfer of power in Syria will top the agenda when Lavrov and Brahimi meet on later this week, the foreign ministry spokesman said.
