Press TV – US unable to bring Syria opp. to Geneva confab: Russia

Russia has sharply criticized the US for its inability to bring the Syria opposition to the Geneva 2 conference on the ongoing crisis in Syria.
“It is strange to hear repeated statements by some US State Department officials that we are moving towards Geneva 2, but it’s important that Russia puts pressure on Damascus. They are shifting the blame. We are actually putting pressure on Damascus, and it really works” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was quoted by Russia Today as saying on Monday.
