The UN Security Council has scheduled a meeting on the issue of Syria on Friday afternoon in New York, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters.
UNITED NATIONS — Russia's Mission to the UN tweeted that "Russia has called for a UNSC meeting on Syria today at 3:00pm (8:00 p.m. GMT)."
Earlier in the day, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Moscow will request a UN Security Council meeting given its concerns of possible plans by Turkey to send troops to Syria.
