GENEVA, January 21 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has arrived in Geneva, Switzerland, to later head for the city of Montreux to attend an international peace conference on Syria.

Lavrov is likely to meet with US Secretary of State John Kerry and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday.

“Meetings with the foreign ministers of Syria, China, the US secretary of state and, possibly, in a three-party format, with the US secretary of state and UN secretary general, are scheduled for today in Montreux,” a source in the Russian delegation told Itar-Tass.

The peace conference on Syria, dubbed “Geneva-2,” will be held on Wednesday. The meeting, arranged by the United States and Russia, is designed to negotiate ways to end the civil war in the Middle East country that has left over 100,000 people dead and displaced millions since its start in 2011.
