Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Monday he was waiting for US “actions” after Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged talks with Damascus were necessary to end the country’s conflict.

“We are still listening to the comments and we have to wait for the actions and then we’ll decide,” Assad told Iranian television in comments in Damascus broadcast on Syrian state television.
