Vienna talks offer 'most promising opportunity' for Syria's future: Kerry

Washington: US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday that this week's international talks on Syria in Vienna will be the best chance to save the war-torn country, Xinhua reported.
 
"While finding a way forward on Syria will not be easy, it's not going to be automatic, (but) it is the most promising opportunity for a political opening we have seen," he said during a speech on America's Middle East policy.
 
"The challenge that we face in Syria today is nothing less than to chart a course out of hell," Kerry told an audience at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
 
He also cited some statistics to highlight urgency to end the war on Syria: one in 20 Syrians killed or wounded; one in five now refugees; average life expectancy down 20 years.

The Secretary was expected to meet with his counterparts from a dozen countries there for a series of bilateral and multilateral talks on Thursday and Friday
