Secretary of State Kerry in Moscow for Talks on Syria

The Takeaway
The situation in Syria continues to escalate. This weekend, Israel launched air strikes on targets it deemed susceptible to capture by Hezbollah. The death toll continues to rise from a conflict in which many actors play a part, including Russia and the U.S. But these two powers have so far been unable to come to terms on a coordinated plan in dealing with the conflict, in part because the US and Russia see different interests in different outcomes. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is visiting Moscow, in the hopes of reaching an agreement with Russia on how to move forward in Syria. Nikolas Gvosdev, National Security Affairs Professor at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, discusses the meetings and its possible outcomes.
