Lavrov Says Syria Resolution Not ‘Hopeless’ Before Clinton Talk

February 04, 2012

“We are not saying this resolution is hopeless,” Lavrov said today at a conference in Munich. The resolution has to be changed in order to address violence of armed groups and remove ambiguities concerning a timeline for peace.
