John Kerry Meets With Vladimir Putin in Moscow to Discuss Syria

John Kerry Meets With Vladimir Putin in Moscow to Discuss SyriaU.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s efforts to unearth new commitments from Russian President Vladimir Putin to further a political process for Syria, in particular that he push president Bashar al-Assad to leave office, in the end appeared to yield little immediately on Thursday night. After 4 hours of discussions at the Kremlin, Kerry emerged close to midnight with Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, to say that the two sides had agreed on a number of practical steps intended to reinforce the month-old ceasefire that has dramatically reduced violence in Syria, and to solidify a peace process relaunched gingerly this month in Geneva. Most of the steps largely reiterated pledges already made, although Kerry said that Russia and the U.S. had now agreed to a “target schedule” for achieving “a framework for the political transition,” and also a draft new constitution, both proposed for August.
