MOSCOW (Sputnik) In August, all members of the United Nations Security Council supported a resolution calling for renewed peace talks on the Syrian conflict, including discussion of a political transition in the country.

"Our consultative meetings with Russian friends are carried out on a permanent basis. The Syrian government, in the face of President Bashar Assad has previously underscored the importance of Moscow-3. This has also been stated by the republic's Foreign Minister Walid Muallem. I meet every day with senior Russian Foreign Ministry officials in order to make Moscow-3 happen," Haddad said.

Syria is currently in a state of civil war, with government forces fighting on multiple fronts against the so-called "moderate" opposition and several radical Islamist groups, including the Islamic State (ISIL) militant group.

Moscow has hosted two rounds of talks between representatives of the Syrian opposition and the country's authorities so far in 2015.
