Kerry: Syria weeks away from ‘big transition’

US Secretary of State John Kerry says that Syria could be weeks away from a “big transition,” following international talks in Vienna over the weekend.

“We are weeks away conceivably from the possibility of a big transition for Syria,” Kerry said after talks with French President Francois Hollande in Paris.

Diplomats at the conference aimed at ending nearly five years of civil war said earlier they reached a timetable which would see a transition government in place in Syria in six weeks, followed by elections and a new constitution within 18 months.
