MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday accused the opposition Syrian National Coalition of seeking to thwart peace efforts by making President Bashar Assad's exit a condition for participating in a proposed international conference.

"One gets the impression that the National Coalition and its regional sponsors are doing everything they can to prevent a political process from starting ... and to achieve military intervention in Syria," Interfax news agency quoted Lavrov as saying.
