New talks to end Syria conflict are held in Switzerland

Foreign ministers of Russia, the U.S., Turkey and other key regional players met in the Swiss city of Lausanne on Saturday for talks on the ongoing crisis in Syria, reports Anadolu Agency.

The meeting comes after several failed attempts to find a diplomatic solution to the deadly Syria conflict.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu and the foreign ministers of Jordan, Egypt, Qatar, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq are present at the talks.

Before the talks, Kerry and Lavrov held a face-to-face meeting for the first time after the U.S. suspended its bilateral talks with Russia on Syria.

UN Special Envoy on Syria, Staffan de Mistura also participated in the meeting.
