Lavrov: SNC will lose out if they opt to boycott Moscow talks


Moscow, SANA

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday Syrian “opposition” representatives would risk losing influence in peace efforts if they do not attend talks in Moscow planned for January 26.

“Those who decide not to take part in this event will lose in terms of their positions in the peace talks process as a whole,” Lavrov told a news conference.

Russia has been stressing need for finding “common solutions away from foreign dictate”, the Russian Foreign Minister said.
