U.S. Agrees With Russia to Back Mediation on Syria Civil War

The U.S. and Russia have agreed to support mediation among all sides in Syria’s civil war in a renewed bid to end the violence, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said today.

Talks on Syria in Dublin yesterday among Clinton, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and United Nations Special Envoy Lakhdar Brahimi were “an important step but just the beginning,” Clinton said today on a stop in Northern Ireland. “I don’t think anybody believes that there was some great breakthrough.”
