Meeting to prepare international peace conference on Syria ends in failure

+

The second USA-Russia-UN meeting, which was held on 25 June 2013 in Geneva, was no more successful than the one held on 5 June: Participants parted without fixing a date for "Geneva 2" or drawing up the list of participants.

Wendy Sherman (USA), Mikhail Bogdanov and Gennady Gatilo (Russia), and Lakhdar Brahimi (UN) could not get their act together and failed to set out the modalities for the Syria peace conference.

Meanwhile, on the ground, the "armed opposition" has been suffering one defeat after another.

U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will meet on the sidelines of the regional forum of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in Brunei to reconcile their viewpoints.
