Syria's Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem has said the government is ready for talks with armed opposition forces fighting to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad.
Al-Moualem made the offer of dialogue during a visit to the Russian capital Moscow. He stressed, however, that Syria will pursue its fight against terrorist elements amongst the rebel forces.
Ryan Crocker, who was the US Ambassador to Syria from 1998 to 2001, believes the war-torn country's neighbours could play a key role in establishing peace.
