US denies Kerry said Syria policy failing
The US administration stood by its policy on Syria, denying that Secretary of State John Kerry had called for a change of strategy and the arming of opposition rebels.
As January marked the deadliest month in the conflict with almost 6,000 killed, some US media claimed the top diplomat had said Washington's policy was failing.
The reports, quoting influential Republican senators, said Kerry made the remarks at a meeting on the side lines of a security conference in Munich.
