WASHINGTON, (BM) – The regime of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad without Russian military assistance would not have been able to hold out for a long time in the confrontation with the armed opposition, said US Special Representative for Syria James Jeffrey.

“Our problem with Russia is that it does not act constructively, despite many proposals coming from time to time from Russia and indicating that it wanted to be useful; and from time to time, as in the case of the constitutional committee, we see a gap,” Interfax reports.

In addition, he said that Russia could take “various political measures” to resolve the Syrian conflict, including organizing “cooperation to get terrorists, starting with the IS group (banned in Russia),” and facilitate the withdrawal of Iranian forces.

Jeffrey claims that the US does not want a regime change in Syria, but they demand a change in behavior. He is confident that Damascus “will not live even a week without the help of Russia on the battlefield,” in connection with which Moscow can decide on the future of this republic.

The day before, he also expressed concern about the aggravation of the situation in Syrian Idlib, and also called on Russia to “change its policy.”
