Syria and America have talked in Baghdad. That’s all.
Oh, and they agreed it would be bad if sectarian violence spread through the region.
Meanwhile, America is sending another 4000 troops to Iraq.
But – it is a breakthrough that Syria and America have talked directly for the first time in two years. It is a sign of the thaw.
An American government official is also on her way to Damascus to discuss the refugee crisis there.
And the EU’s head of Foreign Policy is also visiting Damascus to end Europe’s boycott of Syria.
