Kerry: 'No way' al-Assad can be part of a transitional government in Syria

The aim is ambitious, but the expectations are low.

As top diplomats gathered in Switzerland for international talks aimed at ending Syria's protracted civil war, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged the opposing sides in the conflict to seize the opportunity for peace.

"After nearly three painful years of conflict and suffering in Syria, today is a day of fragile but real hope," he said at the start of the conference in the Swiss town of Montreux.

But the obstacles to finding a solution to a conflict that threatens to destabilize the Middle East quickly became apparent at the conference, which was beset by squabbles before it even began.

    In this segment of the fashion dissertation, mcdougal has to astutely provide contradictory reasoning in relation on the preceding argument. You have 20 mins for Task 1 so I suggest you spend maximum 5 minutes on the preparation stage.

    What right do we have on God's green earth to demand that Bashar al-Assad must go and who are we to dictate Syria's future? We Americans are the one biggest problem that these countries in the Middle East face. It's high time that we just simply butt out!!!

      Just so you know; your ethnic slurs really degenerate your argument. I agree with you that Kerry is on the wrong side by supporting a terrorist take over; but leave the slurs out of it if you want to be taken seriously.
