 MOSCOW, September 16 (Itar-Tass) - It is high time not to talk the Syrian opposition into participating in talks, but make them do it, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after the negotiations with visiting Egyptian counterpart Nabil Fahmy here on Monday.

“We use the phrase to talk the opposition into participating in a conference (Geneva-2) all the time,” the minister said. “Probably, it is high time to begin using another verb - make the opposition participate in the conference,” Lavrov noted.

Russia is always prepared to receive the Syrian National Coalition of Opposition and Revolutionary Forces for talks, Russia's Foreign Minister added.

“We are working with the opposition. The heads of almost all opposition groups visited our country, expect for the national coalition, which has an invitation to visit us. We will be prepared to receive the coalition’s leaders, because it is needed to talk to all parties,” the minister noted.

“In any conflict a scenario should be the following - no isolation of a concrete party, but its involvement (in talks - Itar-Tass),” Lavrov noted.
