STRELNA, September 5 (Itar-Tass) - Russian and German foreign ministers, Sergei Lavrov and Guido Westerwelle, are meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit in St. Petersburg against the background of the worsening situation in Syria and intensification of diplomatic efforts to search for a peaceful solution to the conflict.
