Geneva:   UN diplomat Lakhdar Brahimi met senior diplomats from US and Russia in Geneva with hope that both the nations will use their influence on  the opposition and government respectively to move ahead and compromise. “They have kindly reaffirmed their support for what we are trying to do and promised that they will help both here and in their capitals and elsewhere to unblock the situation for us, because until now we are not making much progress in this process,” Brahimi told a news conference. But he fears that the peace talks might fail and Syria will be plunged into more violence and blood-shed.
