Reuters: U.S. priority on Syria no longer focused on
2017-04-01 21:25:00

“You pick and choose your battles and when we’re looking at this, it’s about changing up priorities and our priority is no longer to sit there and focus on getting Assad out,” Reuters quoted Haley as saying. “Do we think he’s a hindrance? Yes. Are we going to sit there and focus on getting him out? No.”

This statement was a strong departure from the long-term policy of the Obama administration towards the Syrian conflict.

Indeed, this statement confirms the fact that the new US administration understands its limited capabilities in Syria. However, this does not guarantee that it’s really ready to negotiate any kind of peaceful solution of the conflict acceptable for all involved sides.

In Ankara on Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Assad's longer-term status "will be decided by the Syrian people."
