Russia needs to press Syria on peace talks, says senior U.S. official

Published: Updated:

A senior U.S. official said Friday that Russia is being urged to push the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to participate more actively in the Geneva talks aimed at ending the country’s civil war.

U.S. Under-Secretary of State Wendy Sherman told Al Arabiya News Channel’s senior correspondent Rima Maktabi that the Syrian regime needs to take the negotiations more “seriously,” like the opposition.
