MOSCOW - Senior US and Russian diplomats will discuss the Syrian conflict at talks in London on Thursday, Russia said, announcing the latest in a series of meetings aimed at finding an end to the bloodshed.

Russia's special Middle East envoy, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, will hold talks with US Deputy Secretary of State William Burns on the sidelines of an international meeting on Yemen, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said.

Speaking at a weekly news conference on Wednesday, Lukashevich said Bogdanov would also meet Lakhdar Brahimi, the UN/Arab League peace envoy for Syria, but did not make clear whether all three diplomats would meet together.
