MOSCOW, Dec 22 (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei
Lavrov said that neither side would win the civil war in Syria,
and that China and Russia would be unable to persuade President
Bashar al-Assad to quit even if they tried.
In comments cleared for release on Saturday, Lavrov also
said Syria's chemical weapons had been concentrated in one or
two areas and were "under control" for the time being.
