VIENNA – The latest developments in talks on ending the Syrian War (all times local).
Russia's deputy foreign minister says Russia and Saudi Arabia have exchanged lists of Syrian opposition groups who should be involved in political talks over the country's civil war.
Mikhail Bogdanov spoke Friday to Russian reporters in Vienna, where world leaders are convening for talks aimed at ending the Syrian conflict.
He said Russia had given to its partners a day earlier a list with the names of "nearly all opposition groups that we talk to, that we're willing to talk to and who could be invited at the Syria talks." He said the list has 38 names on it "but can be expanded."
Bogdanov added that the Saudis gave them a similar list and the Americans have promised to do the same.
