Kerry meeting with Putin on Syria

MOSCOW (AP) - Secretary of State John Kerry is making the case to Russian President Vladimir Putin that Russia should take a tougher stance on Syria at a time when Israeli air strikes against Syria have added an unpredictable factor to the talks.

Kerry arrived in Moscow Tuesday for talks with the most powerful ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime.

Officials said Kerry hopes to change Moscow's thinking on Syria with two new angles: American threats to arm the Syrian rebels and evidence of chemical weapon attacks by Assad forces.

Over the weekend, Israeli warplanes targeted what Israel claimed were caches of Iranian missiles bound for Hezbollah, the Lebanon-based terror group.
