MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday it may be time to consider efforts to force foes of Syrian President Bashar Assad to attend an international peace conference instead of just urging them to do so.

He also said after talks with Egypt's foreign minister that any calls for a swift UN resolution threatening potential punishment for Syria under Chapter VII of the UN Charter - which can include the use of force - showed a "lack of understanding" of an agreement reached for Syria to abandon its chemical arms.
