Russia accused the United States on Wednesday of stalling chances for peace in Syria by pressing ahead with plans to arm rebels fighting to oust President Bashar Assad.

Russia is at loggerheads over the conflict with its UN Security Council partner, the United States, where President Barack Obama can now move forward with arming rebels after easing some congressional concerns.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told a press conference that Washington's plans would undermine joint efforts to organize an international peace conference on Syria that he agreed to with his U.S. counterpart, John Kerry, in May.
