MOSCOW, December 7. /TASS/. The Syrian settlement was in focus of a telephone conversation between Russian and Saudi Foreign Ministers, Sergey Lavrov and Adel al-Jubeir, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
"The two ministers exchanged views on the regional agenda with a special focus on the situation around Syria," the ministry said. "Lavrov spoke for ensuring maximally representative nature of a meeting of the Syrian opposition due to be held in Riyadh within days.
