Syria's foreign minister has said Damascus is ready to offer a prisoner exchange with rebels.


Speaking in Moscow, Walid Muallem also said he had presented a ceasefire plan for the second city Aleppo to his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov.


The moves came as the opposition Syrian National Coalition prepares to meet in Istanbul to decide whether to go to next week's peace conference.


The coalition is under Western pressure to participate in the Geneva II talks.


The three-year conflict has claimed more than 100,000 lives.
