Washington: Stability in Syria and the Middle East will only be achieved through a political process

The US State Department confirmed that stability in Syria and the entire Middle East region will only be achieved through a political process, expressing its commitment to work with its allies, partners and the United Nations, to ensure that a sustainable political solution is an achievable option.

A spokesman for the ministry said in statements, reported by the American "Al-Hurra" channel, today, Thursday, "The United States does not have any plans to upgrade diplomatic relations with the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, nor does it encourage others to do so."


The United States had announced that it supports all possibilities for the delivery of humanitarian aid to Syria, including through the Bab al-Hawa port, according to "Russia Today".

Deputy Permanent Representative of the United States to the United Nations Jeffrey DeLaurentis said during a session of the Security Council, "The United States supports all possibilities to transfer aid to the Syrians who need it."

He continued, "We are committed to increasing aid through the mechanism of aid transfer across borders, and across the lines of contact as well."

It is noteworthy that the mechanism of transferring aid to Syria across the border without coordination with the Syrian government was a subject of controversy among members of the UN Security Council, as Russia and China were calling for getting rid of this mechanism and the transfer of aid in coordination with Damascus, while Western countries insisted on extending it.
