Russia: Syrian rebels not committed to peace talks

MOSCOW - Russia said on Wednesday that the Syrian opposition had not yet shown enough commitment to efforts to arrange a peace conference with President Bashar Assad's government.
"We value the constructive reaction of the Syrian leadership to this proposal (for a conference)," Lavrov said at the start of talks with Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad in Moscow.
"We also hope that a constructive reaction from various opposition groups ... will follow. So far, however, the news is not hopeful."
