Clinton in North Ireland urges "concerted push" on Syria

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Friday on all parties with influence in Syria to make a "concerted push" together to halt the conflict.

Clinton said there had been no "great breakthrough" during talks in Dublin on Thursday with her Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov and the UN peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi, but said there would be further meetings.

"All of us with any influence on the process, with any influence on the regime or the opposition, needs to be engaged with Brahimi for a concerted, sincere push to see what is possible", Clinton said.
