Baku-APA. Russia has urged the international community to consider Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's proposal to solve the Syrian crisis. Wednesday’s remark comes on the heel of a meeting between Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov and the Syrian Ambassador to Moscow, APA reports quoting Xinhua.

Further talks are set to take place later this week between senior Russian and US diplomats, as well as UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi

Assad proposed a political solution in a televised address on Sunday, which includes a ceasefire, followed by a comprehensive national dialogue conference and the establishment of a broad-based government and parliament.
