MOSCOW - The resignation of international peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi must not disrupt diplomatic efforts to resolve the Syrian conflict, Russia's deputy foreign minister said on Wednesday.

Russia is Syrian President Bashar Assad's most powerful diplomatic ally and main arms supplier.

Brahimi will step down at the end of this month after two rounds of negotiations between the Assad government and the opposition which failed to break a deadlock.
