Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said violence was "a road to no-where".

The move comes as the opposition Syrian National Coalition is due to begin a two-day meeting in Egypt to discuss a framework for a possible solution.

The UN says Some 70,000 people have died since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began in March 2011.
