    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is due to meet with his Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem in Moscow on November 26.

    MOSCOW, November 11 (RIA Novosti) –Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov may meet with his Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem in Moscow on November 26, a Russian diplomatic source told RIA Novosti Tuesday.

    "The meeting with Lavrov, I think, will take place on November 26," the source said.

    The talks are aimed at finding a way out of Syria's years-long civil war, which flared up in March 2011 following a string of anti-government uprisings. The armed conflict has killed more than 191,000 from the start of the conflict in March 2011 to April 2014, according to UN's latest report.
