    Russia's foreign minister says there is a "very good chance" that world powers will find common ground on a resolution regarding ending the crisis in Syria.

    Sergei Lavrov's optimism comes ahead of a UN-hosted meeting in Geneva on Saturday to discuss joint UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan's proposal for the formation of a transitional Syrian government.

    Lavrov met US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday.
