A Senior State Department Official:
Secretary Kerry and Foreign Minister Davutoglu met this afternoon on the margins of the Munich Security Conference. They discussed the need to continue pressing the Syrian regime to abide by their commitment to move chemical weapons to the port at Latakia. They agreed that more needed to be done to increase humanitarian access, and the delay in providing access for convoys into Homs and other besieged areas was simply unacceptable. They also talked about the next round of negotiations in Geneva and the importance of both the regime and the opposition coming to the table committed to discussing the implementation of the Geneva communique.
Finally they discussed Cyprus and the United States’ support for the negotiation process, conducted under the UN’s good offices, to reunify the island into a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation.
