LAUSANNE, Switzerland (Reuters) - U.S.-led talks on the Syria conflict in Lausanne on Saturday had a good consensus on a number of possibilities that could lead to a ceasefire in Syria, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said.

Kerry added to reporters, however, that there were some difficult, tense moments in the talks and that the next contact between sides at the talks would be on Monday to discuss future steps.

He said the parties “might be able to shape some different approaches” from Saturday’s meeting.
