World powers arrive in Munich hoping to resurrect Syrian peace talks

US Secretary of State John Kerry has arrived in Munich hoping

to resurrect Syrian Peace talks . He’s pushing for a ceasefire for humanitarian aid to get through. World powers including Saudi Arabia, Iran and Russia are all taking part but rebels are staying away unless a Russian bombing offensive stops. Moscow has reportedly proposed a March 1 date for a ceasefire but it’s also reacted angrily to US allegations that its using “ dumb bombs” as part of its bombing offensive. Last week, John Kerry accused Russia of using imprecise “free-fall” or “dumb bombs” that have killed large numbers of civilians in Syria. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova speaking in Moscow dismissed the US allegations: “We consider statements, public statements of US representatives, that Russia is using unguided ‘dumb bombs’ in Syria, which have allegedly killed civilians, (to be) absolutely unacceptable. It’s pure speculation not backed up by facts.”
