Syrian Peace Talks Begin In Earnest

Representatives from the Syrian government and opposition groups are meeting in Geneva today to discuss possible resolutions to the fighting going on in Syria. Rebel fighters had resisted taking part, and ISIS and the Kurds weren’t invited.

As Imogen Foulkes of the BBC tells Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson, critics argue that without the Kurdish minority at the table, these talks may have a difficult time resulting in anything substantive.
