Russian on Friday said the Damascus government had agreed to attend an international peace symposium set to convene in Geneva next month aimed at resolving the conflict in Syria, AFP reported.

"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," Russian foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich was quoted as saying in regard to the alleged notice received this week by Moscow during a visit by Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad.
