“The governments involved are going to meet later in this month in New York in order to continue to move this process forward,” Kerry said in a speech to the Brookings Institution in Washington. 

“Our goal is to facilitate a transition that all parties have stated that they support,” he added.

Last month, Russia, the United States and powers from Europe and the Middle East met in Vienna, Austria for a second round of talks and outlined a plan for a political process in Syria leading to elections within two years.
