U.S., Russia share common views over Syria: Kerry


MOSCOW, May 7 - The United States and Russia shared similar positions over the settlement of Syrian crisis, visiting U. S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday.

During his meeting with President Vladimir Putin, Kerry said both Washington and Moscow were interested in stability in the Middle East region, the Kremlin press service reported.

"The United States believes that we share some very significant common interests with respect to Syria -- stability in the region, not having extremists creating problems throughout the region and elsewhere," Kerry said, expressing his hope that the two countries could "be able to dig into that little bit and see if we can find some common ground."

Kerry also noted that the U.S. and Russia shared a common approach toward solving the prolonged crisis in Syria reflected in the Geneva communique.

This is Kerry's first visit to Russia since he took office on Feb.1.

Earlier in the day, Kerry witnessed a rehearsal of the Victory Day Parade in downtown Moscow and laid a wreath at the Tomb of Unknown Soldier and Eternal Flame near the Kremlin.

In addition to his talks with Putin, Kerry also plans to meet with high-ranking Russian officials and representatives from civil society during his visit here, the State Department said earlier.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
