ST PETERSBURG, Russia - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday that he had urged Syria's government to "do a lot more" to implement a UN-backed peace plan, but that foreign countries must also press rebels to stop the violence.

After talks with Syria's foreign minister, Lavrov told a Russian television station the Syrian government was prepared to withdraw forces from cities and towns simultaneously with rebels and suggested Moscow would seek support for such an agreement among other nations.
