The UN and Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi says that a conference on ending the war in Syria is unlikely to take place next month.

He called on the United States and Russia to help contain the conflict, saying that giving arms to either side would delay a political solution.

Meanwhile, US Secretary of State John Kerry is in Saudi Arabia for talks on how to stop the bloodshed and the Gulf state says it 'cannot ignore' the actions of Bashar al-Assad's regime.

Al Jazeera's Dominic Kane reports.
