Russia calls for talks in Moscow on Syria

Russia’s foreign minister Monday called for international talks in Moscow to promote a peace process for Syria and avert an American military strike.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said his Syrian counterpart, Foreign Minister Walid Moallem, “said quite clearly Damascus is ready to participate in a positive way” in negotiations.
