World powers call for political solution in Syria

World powers meeting in Tunisia yesterday have called for a political solution in Syria and what one diplomat called a "tsunami wave" of pressure to peel away internal support for the embattled regime of Bashar al-Assad.
According to the CNN, the consensus was reached during a day of meetings by the "Friends of Syria" in the cradle of the Arab Spring.

Participants have laid out the groundwork for a political transition in Syria similar to the international planning that preceded the changes in Libya, where Moammar Gadhafi's regime was toppled last year.
