STRELNA, September 5 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said he was planning to meet his G20 colleagues on Friday, September 6.
U.N./LAS Special Envoy for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi is invited to take part in the meeting, Lavrov told Itar-Tass.
“Brahimi will take part in the G20 summit. He is member of the U.N. delegation led by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon,” the Russian minister said.
“Tomorrow I’ll hold a working breakfast with the G20 foreign minister and Brahimi is invited to take part in it,” he said.
On Wednesday, September 4, Lavrov said in a telephone conversation with Brahimi that it was unacceptable to use force against Syria by-passing the U.N. Security Council. “The use of force is a gross violation of international law,” he said.
