‘Bloody chaos’ if Syria talks fail - Russia

RUSSIA: Russia on Thursday warned of “bloody chaos” in Syria should peace talks led by UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi fail to end the 21-month conflict estimated to have claimed more than 45,000 lives.

“The alternative to a peaceful solution is bloody chaos. The longer it continues, the greater its scale -- and the worse things get for all,” Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the Interfax news agency.

Lavrov's comments followed his meeting earlier in the day with a senior Syrian delegation led by Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Muqdad.

Lavrov's meeting with the Syrians came as Brahimi wound down several days of talks in Damascus by calling for “real change” and the quick introduction of a transition government “with all powers”.

Assad's government has still not responded to Brahimi's call. But the armed opposition immediately rejected any transition plan that would see either Assad or his immediate cohorts retain their positions of authority.

Brahimi will meet Lavrov in Moscow on Saturday in hopes of convincing Russia to do all it can to make sure that Assad accepts an accord that would gradually ease him from power.

Lavrov did not disclose the full details of his talks with the visiting Syrian delegation.
