MOSCOW - The situation in Syria is worsening but a negotiated solution to the 21-month-old conflict that has killed over 44,000 people remains possible, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday.

He spoke after talks in Moscow with UN-Arab League mediator Lakhdar Brahimi but appeared to offer no major new ideas for ending the conflict, in which rebels are trying to oust President Bashar Assad, a close ally of Moscow.
