Syrian rebels deserve more support if Bashar Al Assad refuses to negotiate a political solution to the civil war, the new US secretary of State John Kerry said yesterday.
“If the president of the country decides he isn’t going to come and negotiate and he’s just going to kill his people, then you at least need to provide some support for the people who are fighting,” Mr Kerry told students in Berlin.
Russia, Syria’s main ally, urged Washington yesterday to steer the Syrian opposition to hold unconditional talks with the regime.
