Afghan Leader In Pakistan To Discuss Peace Talks

Afghanistan's president urged neighboring Pakistan to facilitate peace talks with the Taliban during a visit to Islamabad, but expectations were low in both countries that much progress would be made in jumpstarting negotiations. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will make a statement on Syria, the State Department said, as the United States weighs options to respond to reports of a chemical weapons attack on civilians near Damascus. US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said the US is ready to take military action in Syria, should President Obama ask for it.
