WASHINGTON - The United States came "late" to an effort to end the Syrian civil war and is trying to prevent the total collapse of the country, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday.

"This is a very difficult process, which we come to late," Kerry said at a news conference.

"We are trying to prevent the sectarian violence from dragging Syria down into a complete and total implosion where it has broken up into enclaves and the institutions of the state have been destroyed, with God knows how many additional refugees and how many innocent people killed."
