Syria: Russia Not Mediating Al-Assad's Exit - Foreign Minister

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Dec. 22 that his country is not mediating any negotiations over the departure of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the New York Times reported. In remarks initially reported by Interfax and RIA-Novosti, Lavrov also said he believed the United States and Europe were losing their influence over the Syrian opposition coalition. The remarks came hours after unconfirmed reports that the United States and Russia had agreed on an exit for al-Assad. Russia has recently indicated it sees a shift in the military balance in Syria but has remained opposed to international intervention there.
