US, Russia pledge to find solution for Syria

imgThe United States and Russia have pledged to help unblock stalled negotiations between Syria’s two warring sides, international mediator Lakhdar Brahimi said on Thursday.

“They have kindly reaffirmed their support for what we are trying to do and promised that they will help both here and in their capitals and elsewhere to unblock the situation for us because until now we are not making much progress in this process,” Brahimi told a news conference in Geneva.

Brahimi said that no new confidence-building measures – such as prisoner releases or agreement on access to besieged areas – had been discussed during the round that began between the opposition and Syrian government on Monday.
