Kerry says US seeks faster Syria political transition

Feb. 27, 2013 4:25 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 27, 2013 4:25 P.M.)
PARIS (Reuters) -- Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday that the United States hoped to find ways to speed up a political transition in Syria and would discuss ideas at a Friends of Syria meeting in Rome on Friday.

"We are examining and developing ways to accelerate the transition the Syrian people seek and deserve," Kerry told a news conference with his French counterpart Laurent Fabius in Paris before travelling on to Rome.

The Washington Post has reported that the White House was considering a shift in policy toward the nearly two-year-long conflict in Syria, and may send the rebels body armor and armed vehicles, and possibly provide military training. According to the report, US officials still oppose providing arms.
