Moscow - Russia expressed fear on Tuesday that the conflict in Syria between President Bashar al-Assad and rebel forces that began nearly two years ago could be protracted with no clear outcome.

“You know at first the forecasts were two to three months, four, and it is already two years,” Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bodganov was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies. “So the situation can develop in different ways. I think it could become protracted in nature.” - Sapa-AFP
