World leaders gathered this morning at a conference in Switzerland that has been billed as possibly the best chance for ending the war in Syria.
It is the first time the Assad regime and opposition will meet face-to-face with officials from dozens of other countries.
But it’s notable who is not there- Iran- and there are real questions if the conference will accomplish anything at all. Based on Nic Robertson’s update, things do not seem promising:
“Not a lot, if any, conciliation coming from the Syrian government side. Then we heard from Secretary of State John Kerry unequivocally, and very clearly, say that Bashar al-Assad cannot be any part of this process going forward.”
