Regional, international diplomats struggle over Aleppo

Published: Updated:

UN envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura is seeking support from the United States and Russia to revive an overarching cessation of violence, which went into effect in most of Syria in late February but has been frequently breached.

Germany will also host a meeting Wednesday aimed at putting Syria's peace process back on track after the surge in fighting in recent weeks.

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier is to join de Mistura, Syrian opposition official Riad Hijab and French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault for the talks to be held near Berlin's Lake Tegel.
