Russia has proposed a draft resolution to extend the UN mission in Syria for three months. The current 90-day UN mission expires on July 21. Under the document, it would shift focus from monitoring a non-existent truce to hammering out a transition solution for the conflict.
Russian diplomats said the draft resolution is "absolutely non-confrontational" and is in line with the decision taken on June 30 in Geneva.
The conference of leading world and regional powers came up with a roadmap for transition in Syria, which would include immediate cease-fire and forming a unity government with all the sides of the conflict.
Peaceful settlement of the Syrian conflict will be also discussed in Moscow. On Wednesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will hold talks with the Syrian National Council, the country's largest opposition group.
