CAIRO - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Arab foreign ministers on Saturday that Moscow was ready to work with anyone seeking reform in Syria, but that the international community should not blame only one side for the violence.

Lavrov, whose country is an old ally of Damascus and its main arms supplier, also said in an address to an Arab ministerial meeting in Cairo that Moscow stuck by its principle of not interfering in any country's internal affairs.

The Russian minister's comments were carried in Arabic translation by television channels.
