Moscow and Berlin believe that all parties representing Syria’s political opposition should be in attendance at the inter-Syrian peace talks in Geneva, and it includes Kurds as well, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

"We have paid a particular attention to the [Syrian] political process," Lavrov said after a meeting in Moscow with his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmeier. "We welcome all developments, which are currently underway in Geneva."

"As far as I understand, we do both believe that it is necessary to provide for an authentically inclusive nature of the inter-Syrian talks, so that the negotiations would be attended by delegations from the government and the whole range of the Syrian political opposition, including Kurds as well, since the foundations of the Syrian government is at the issue," the top Russian diplomat added.
