Moscow - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and foreign intelligence service chief Mikhail Fradkov will travel to Syria on Tuesday to meet President Bashar al-Assad, Russian news agencies quoted Lavrov as saying in Munich on Saturday.

The statement came as Russia and Western states clash over a draft UN Security Council resolution that would support an Arab League plan calling for Assad to cede power.

Lavrov, who said President Dmitry Medvedev had instructed him and Fradkov to make the trip, gave no details about its specific purpose, the reports said.

    RUSSIAN, SOUTH AFRICA & CHINA all have Syrian and Libyan blood on their hands. BRICS support (excluding India) for rouge murderess regimes will backfire. It already backfired in Libya. soon the Chinese and Russian spring will come and free another 1.2 billion people.

      Well said. It's almost hard to imagine a Chinese and Russian Spring, but it's coming. Their leaders are on their way out. The new generation is about to take their place.
