KSA, US push Syria truce

WASHINGTON: Saudi Arabia and the US will push for an immediate cease-fire in Syria at international talks this week, their top diplomats said Monday.
Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir and US Secretary of State John Kerry met in Washington to prepare for broader negotiations in Munich in Thursday, said AFP.
“We have a tremendous stake in trying to resolve the problems in the region before they consume all of us,” Al-Jubeir said, giving brief remarks with Kerry.
Both Kerry and Al-Jubeir cited UN Security Council resolution 2254, which calls for a cease-fire and humanitarian access to besieged Syrian towns.
