Kerry urges parties in Syrian peace talks to seize opportunity
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry appealed on Sunday to both sides to continue Syrian peace talks in Geneva despite an attack by Islamic State bombers that killed more than 60 people near the country’s holiest Shi’ite shrine.
Kerry said the conflict could easily engulf the Middle East if no negotiated settlement was achieved. He also called for immediate steps to increase food aid and other humanitarian assistance to Syrians.
“In the end there is no military solution to the conflict,” Kerry said in a televised statement.
