MOSCOW - Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov signaled no change in Russia's position on the conflict on Syria on Monday before talks in Moscow with UN special envoy Kofi Annan.

Lavrov reiterated Moscow's opposition to a resolution being discussed by the UN Security Council on extending a monitoring mission in Syria which includes a threat of sanctions.

He told a news conference that such threats contained "elements of blackmail".
