Moscow: No 'Constructive Reaction' Yet from Syrian Opposition on Int'l Peace Talks

TEHRAN (FNA)- The developments in Syria require an immediate ceasefire and a start to political dialogue, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

The Syrian opposition, though, has not yet shown enough commitment to arrange a peace conference with Bashar Assad's government, he added during talks with Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad in Moscow, RT reported.

The idea to hold the international conference on Syria was put forward by Russia and the US earlier in May. Officials in Damascus welcomed the proposal, while the opposition remains divided on the matter.
