Kerry plays down 'tactics' differences on Syria

US Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday that Washington and its allies may differ over "tactics" on the Syrian conflict but they shared the goal of a handover of power. The top US diplomat was speaking at the start of an 11-day tour aimed at shoring up ties with Arab nations that have frayed in part over the war in Syria. After a brief stopover in Cairo, Kerry was to head later Sunday for Saudi Arabia which has sent public signals of its disquiet over what is seen as hesitant US policy in ending the 31-month conflict.
