    Mikhail Margelov, Russia’s special envoy to Africa, said on Friday he would soon meet with a delegation from the Syrian opposition in Moscow.

    "I will host a delegation of the Syrian opposition in Moscow in the near future," Margelov said during a news conference at RIA Novosti.

    Britain and France, Germany and Portugal presented a draft resolution to the UN Security Council on Syria on Wednesday, condemning Damascus for violently suppressing opposition protests, but stopping short of calling for armed intervention there.

    A vote in the Security Council could take place in the next few days, according to media reports

    The Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday it would not support any resolution on Syria, where more than 1,000 people have been killed since an uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began in March.
