Kerry doubles down on demand that Assad must go
(Posted on 10/14/13 at 12:51 pm)
quote: Secretary of State John Kerry struck an uncompromising stance Monday that Syrian President Bashar Assad has no political future after meeting with the United Nations' special envoy for Syria. Kerry has taken heat from the U.S.-backed Syrian opposition and U.S. allies in the region for giving “credit to the Assad regime” for its early compliance with a U.N. resolution that it turn over its chemical weapons. He told reporters Monday that Assad has lost his legitimacy and that there was an “urgent” need to set a date for a last-ditch peace conference to replace him.
quote: Critics, including Security Council members Russia and China, say it's up to the Syrian people to negotiate their future, and the United States and other Western powers should not set preconditions.
