US plans to arm Syrian opposition, to strike Syria contradict Russian-US agreements on calling Geneva 2 Conference, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

Plans by the United States to arm the Syrian opposition and develop strike scenarios for Syria contradict the Russian-U.S. agreements to hold an international conference on Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"If our US partners are currently putting the emphasis in the Syrian issue on arming the opposition and the release of plans, which, judging by everything, are being prepared, to strike the Syrian government's positions, then this does not comply with but contradicts the agreement to hold a conference without preliminary conditions," Lavrov said at a news conference in Moscow on Wednesday.

Russia willing to make public its info on use of chemical weapons in Syria - Lavrov

Russia is prepared to make public its information on the use of chemical weapons in Syria and is calling on other countries to do the same, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"As we have told the [UN] secretary general, we are ready to make our information public. We expect those who have information on other instances of the use of chemical weapons to act in the same way," Lavrov said at a press conference summing up outcomes of his negotiations with Moldovan Foreign Minister Natalia Gherman on Wednesday.
