The Russian Foreign Ministry says Moscow will not attend the international meeting on the conflict in Syria this Friday because the government of President Bashar al-Assad will not be represented. It also urges the international community to get Syrian opposition and authorities together for talks.

Alexander Lukashevich, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman, said, "According to incoming information, separate groups of the Syrian opposition have been called to Tunisia, but the representatives of the Syrian government have not been invited to the conference. This means that the interests of a large part of the Syrian population, which support the authorities, will not be represented."
