Kerry, Russian Foreign Minister Ready For Another Syria Peace Conference

Think it may go better even as they continue to negotiate over chemical weapons


U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry and his Russian counterpart said Friday that they would try by the end of the month to set a date for another international peace conference on Syria, even as they continued to negotiate a possible solution to the Syrian government's possession of chemical weapons.

Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov expressed hope that a date for a second peace conference in Geneva, to follow up one held in the Swiss city last year, could be decided in the margins of a U.N. General Assembly meeting due to be held at the end of this month.
