BERLIN Oct 5 There are no international
proposals to impose sanctions on Russia over its role in Syria,
a spokesman for Germany's foreign ministry said on Wednesday,
shortly before officials from a group of Western countries meet
in Berlin to discuss the crisis.
"At the moment, I know noone, either in Berlin or anywhere
else, who has such proposals," said a foreign ministry spokesman
when asked about the possibility of sanctions at a regular
government news conference.
Senior officials from the United States, Britain, France,
Italy and Germany are due to meet later in Berlin to try to find
ways of resolving the conflict in Syria.
