Russia: Assad foes must come to meeting without conditions

SOCHI, Russia - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday that it is crucial for Syrian opposition representatives to take part in a peace conference without setting any preconditions, apparently referring to demands for Syrian President Bashar Assad's exit.
Lavrov also reiterated that Iran must be among nations invited to the conference that Russia and the United States are trying to organize to seek a resolution to the more than two-year-old conflict that has killed at least 80,000 people.
