Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov Monday insisted Moscow did not accept the departure of Syrian President Bashar Assad as a prerequisite for launching any peace process in the war-torn country.The visit came after Lavrov last week hosted Saudi Arabia's foreign minister and representatives of the Syrian opposition, who all insisted Assad must go.Moscow is also pushing a plan for a broader grouping than the current U.S.-led coalition to fight ISIS, to include Syria's government and its allies, but Assad's opponents have rejected the idea.
