UK to discuss Syria with Russia on G8 summit

Britain will use its role as host of a summit of the G8 group of nations next week to try to get both sides in the Syrian conflict to attend a peace conference, Prime Minister David Cameron said on Wednesday, June 12.

“We should use the G8 to try and bring pressure on all sides to bring about … a peace conference, a peace process, and a move towards a transitional government in Syria,” Cameron told parliament.

Russian President Vladimir Putin will fly to London on Sunday for advance talks about Syria before the summit in Northern Ireland, he added.
