Obama: Hopeful about talks with Russia over Syria
Thursday - 9/12/2013, 7:40pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says he's hopeful Secretary of State John Kerry's meetings with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Switzerland can "yield a concrete result" on Syria.
Kerry opened two days of meeting with his Russian counterpart in Geneva Thursday. The two hope to settle on the outlines of a plan to secure and destroy Syrian chemical weapons stockpiles.
Obama made his remarks at the beginning of a meeting with members of his Cabinet at the White House.
The U.S.-Russia talks offer a potential path to avoid U.S. strikes against the Syrian government for a chemical attack on civilians last month that the U.S. blames on Syrian President Bashar Assad.
