U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.N. peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi Thursday to discuss the Syrian conflict.

A senior U.S. official said the trio will meet in Dublin, Ireland on the sidelines of a human rights conference.

The meeting comes as Germany's Cabinet agreed to send Patriot air defense missiles and troops to Turkey to help protect the NATO member from possible Syrian attacks.
