Syria Peace Talks End In Apparent Failure
Originally published on Fri February 14, 2014 3:22 pm
The peace talks in Switzerland aren’t changing much on the ground in Syria. Government troops and warplanes continue to batter a rebel-held town near the border with Lebanon, and an effort to evacuate trapped civilians from the besieged city of Homs has been halted.
NPR’s Deborah Amos joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to discuss the talks.
“It was a bust in Geneva,” she says. “It’s really hard to see how these talks go anywhere, and if anybody had a better idea, I think that they would cancel them.”
