U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday he expected a proposed Syria peace conference backed by Washington and Moscow to be held in June, and he denied reports that the Damascus government did not plan to attend.

"If he decides not to come to the table, it would be another one of President (Bashar) Assad's gross miscalculations," Kerry told reporters in Sweden. "I don't believe that that is the case at this moment."

Syrian Information Minister Omran Zoabi said earlier in the day that Damascus wanted specifics on the proposed conference before it decides whether to be part of it.
