Syria, North Korea, Iran on G8 agenda

The war in Syria, the crisis over North Korea, and the Iranian nuclear program are on the agenda of talks among foreign ministers of the Group of Eight nations.

Talks among the G8 ministers are continuing on April 11 in London.

Officials said Syria and North Korea were discussed in a meeting on April 10 between U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

Lavrov said Moscow and Washington have “no differences” over North Korea and warned against any escalation of the situation with “military maneuvers.”

Representatives of the opposition Syrian National Coalition, meanwhile, held meetings with some G8 foreign ministers to discuss increasing aid to the opposition.

The G8 ministers were also expected to discuss the failure of the recent international talks on the Iranian nuclear program.
