Tillerson-Russia must choose between US and Assad
Russia must make a choice: the country joins the United States and the coalition of like-minded countries, or embrace the Syrian President Assad, Iran and terrorist group Hezbollah.
That said US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson prior to his visit to Moscow.
It is unclear whether Russia according to Tillerson obligations not taken seriously in Syria, or the country for that purpose is simply incapable. Anyway, have that distinction ‘the dead in any case nothing, “he said.
He again stressed that these poison gas attack by the Syrian regime will not be tolerated. “We cannot let this happen again. We want to alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people. Russia can play an important role.”
But Tillerson made it clear that it would not benefit in the long run Russia’s interests as Russia remains allied to Assad, Iran and Hezbollah.
Moreover, he repeated the US position that there is no more future for Assad in Syria.
