Russia calls Syria violence outrageous, wants talks

RIYADH, Nov 14 (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov condemned the violence in Syria as “outrageous” and said opponents of President Bashar al-Assad needed to integrate the opposition inside Syria into their ranks.

His comments came after talks in the Saudi capital Riyadh with foreign ministers of the six-member Gulf Cooperation Council, which the Qatari foreign minister said had failed to bridge the differences between the two sides.
