Washington, July 27 (): Appealing that Bashar Al-Assad, the Syrian President is losing hold of his nation’s territory, the US has asked the leader to get rid of power by himself.
Mike Hammer, the assistant secretary of state for public affairs told reporters at a news conference organized by the Washington Foreign Press Centre that Assad must leave. He has to understand, as he is seen, as he is losing hold of his region and of his country, that the violence is not the way to resolve this. He should leave the power by himself.
Hammer said US and number of other countries are now focused on what will happen next in Syria and how to make Syria for a day without Assad and in a day when all the ethnic groups can join together and form the kind of government that is representative of the Syrian people.
His remarks came shortly after the White House said that Assad’s days are now numbered. Jay Carney, White House press secretary told reporters we need to move quickly to look at what Syria can and should be in a post-Assad world, work with our partners, work with the opposition to help create that transition, because Assad’s days are surely numbered.
He added saying, the Obama administration, is in discussions all time about Syria both internally and with its partners and allies around the world at the United Nations, at the Friends of Syria and elsewhere.
The United States stated its fear about the chance of mass civilian losses in Aleppo, one of the Middle East’s most storied cities and a Unesco World Heritage site.
Victoria Nuland, a spokeswoman of State Department told reporters in Washington that we would see a massacre in Aleppo, and that is what the government appears to be lining up for. She added saying there is no kind of groundswell call for external support that we have seen elsewhere.
