Kerry and Iran’s Zarif discuss ways to renew Syrian truce, deliver aid

US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday he had discussed ways to revive a “frayed” Syrian truce and get aid into besieged communities with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who had indicated “how this can be achieved”. Addressing a seminar in Norway on conflict resolution, Kerry said he was working to put in place a “genuine” ceasefire agreement among warring factions, despite repeated violations of the Feb. 27 truce.

The 70-minute meeting with Zarif took place soon after Kerry’s arrival in Norway from the Dominican Republic. The two also discussed the implementation of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and related sanctions relief for Tehran, the US State Department said.
