LONDON (AP) -- U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says Syria's moderate opposition officials are still weighing whether to enter negotiations with President Bashar Assad to create a new government and end the nation's bloody civil war.
Kerry spoke after meeting Tuesday with opposition leader Ahmad al-Jarba, and said he was hopeful that negotiations could begin as early as next month.
But Kerry said al-Jarba's coalition would decide within the week whether it was ready to meet with Assad's government on ways to move forward after 2 1/2 years of war that has killed more than 100,000.
Both Kerry and al-Jarba were in London meeting with diplomats from 11 Western and Mideast nations who are trying to reach a settlement.
