President Bashar Assad has agreed to take part in the international conference in Geneva next month, aimed at resolving the Syrian conflict, Russian's Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

"We note with satisfaction that we have received an agreement in principle from Damascus to attend the international conference in the interest of the Syrians themselves finding a political path to resolve the conflict," spokesman Alexander Lukashevich was quoted as saying.

The Syrian government itself has yet to confirm that it is sending a representative to the conference.
