    Russia never evaded contacts with all opposition groups in Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday.

    ALANYA (Sputnik) – He added that during a meeting in Lausanne a month ago, Russia advocated establishing contacts with the armed Syrian opposition.

    “We never evaded either contacts with any political opposition groups or contacts with field commanders. As our Turkish colleagues also have contacts with both, including field commanders, we exchange information on what climate prevails in that environment, spur them to become part of a common solution as part of what was discussed within the International Syria Support Group and at the UN Security Council,” Lavrov said.
