Russia to host Syrian opposition


Russia said Wednesday it will host a Syrian opposition delegation later this month despite using its veto against a Western-backed UN resolution condemning Bashar al-Assad’s use of deadly force. “In October we intend to receive in Moscow two Syrian opposition delegations: one from the domestic wing of the opposition based in Damascus, and the second from those who declared the so-called national council,” Russian foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich told journalists in televised remarks.
Although officially invited to attend a public function, they “will be received at the foreign ministry”, Lukashevich said without revealing the exact dates of the visit.
