Kerry says sees opportunity for progress on Syria as he meets Zarif

US Secretary of State John Kerry said he saw an opportunity for progress this week towards ending Syria’s four-year civil war, as he met Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly on Saturday. Western officials said Kerry wants to launch a new initiative to find a political solution to the Syrian conflict, which has taken on a new urgency in light of Russia’s military build-up in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and a refugee crisis that has spilled over into Europe.
