From Washington, this is VOA news. I'm Dave DeForest reporting.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry joins talks in Paris: Foreign ministers from European and Arab nations are discussing the battle against the Islamic State and efforts to foster a political resolution to the situation in Syria. Diplomats are trying to build momentum for a meeting Friday in New York that would include U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and his envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura. They want a foundation for a cease-fire and a political process based on last month's Vienna agreement to begin peace talks by January 1.
