Syria and North Korea dominating G8 meeting

G8 UK 2013

Kerry did not make any promises

As the G8 foreign ministers are holding a second day of talks in London focusing on Syria and North Korea, the US Secretary of State John Kerry, as predicted and expected, especially since some of the Syrian opposition leaders recently pledged their allegiance to Al-Qaeda, did not make any promises as the same Syrian opposition leaders renewed their appeals for lethal aid.

Western and Middle Eastern nations supporting the opposition will meet in Turkey on April 20, where US Secretary of State John Kerry will attend the meeting of the so-called Friends of Syria “core group” in Istanbul. My personal belief, considering that the G8 consist of the US, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Canada and Russia, is that the Syrians are going to have to fight their own war.

North Korean threats of war are also high on the agenda of the G8 talks.
