Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, center, leaves an elevator after his meeting with Lebanese parliament speaker Nabih Berri in Beirut, Lebanon, Wednesday, Aug. 12, 2015. Zarif is scheduled to arrive Wednesday afternoon in Damascus, likely to discuss a four-point peace plan proposal Iran wants to offer to the United Nations to end Syria’s grinding civil war. But discussions alone of that plan, which reportedly includes a cease-fire and a “national unity government,” likely won’t pause a conflict that’s killed more than 250,000 people since March 2011.
