MOSCOW - Russia said on Monday it opposed any setting of preconditions for talks between the Syrian government and its enemies, and that plans for the country's political future cannot be forced on it from outside.
The Foreign Ministry repeated calls for an end to fighting and start of talks between the Syrian government and opposition but said Russia rejected "attempts to force prepared recipes for socio-political development" on the Middle Eastern nation.
