Russia unswayed on Syria diplomacy

Before representatives meet on Tuesday, Russia reminds the UN that the West does not have a monopoly on diplomacy.

    Sergei Lavrov, Russia's foreign minister, will meet with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus on Tuesday, but for now, he is keeping the content of that meeting under wraps.

    Russian leaders say they are as upset as anyone about the deadly fighting in Syria, but after voting against an anti-Syria resolution at the UN, it appears that Moscow is trying to prove that the West does not have a monopoly on diplomacy.
