It’s no secret that the Trump administration has recently floated the idea of removing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power. When and how that actually happens is all the buzz in the media world.
Early Tuesday, Sec. of State Rex Tillerson — who’s on his way to Moscow — dropped the final confirmation that Assad better polish up his resume and look for a new gig.
The Daily Caller reports:
As the secretary of state spoke to reporters in Italy before he departed for Moscow Tuesday, he said a chemical weapons attack — like the one in Syria last week that left at least 80 people dead — must not be allowed to happen again. Tillerson said Russia should rethink its decision to ally with countries like Syria and Iran.
“We want to create a future for Syria that is stable and secure,” Tillerson said. “Russia can be part of that future and play an important role or Russia can maintain its alliance with this group which we believe is not going to serve Russia’s interest longer term.”
“It is clear to all of us that reign of the Assad family is coming to an end, but the question of how that ends and the transition itself could be very important in our view to the durability, the stability inside a unified Syria.”
Tillerson’s comment comes just hours after he said there was no change in U.S. policy on Syria regarding regime change.
