US Secretary of State، Rex Tillerson، called on Russia to pressure Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to declare a political settlement with the opposition.
"We call on Russia and other countries to intervene to curb the escalation of violence in Syria and to eliminate terrorist groups، as well as to stop the war with the opposition،" Tillerson was quoted as saying according to Russian news agency Novosti.
Noteworthy، Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Donald Trump issued a joint statement last November on Syria and agreed to continue efforts to curb violence there.
In the same context، Tillerson had met Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi on Monday in order to discuss ways to address the Syrian crises.
The two sides also discussed the situations in Libya to achieve a political settlement to the crises، said spokesman for the presidency ambassador Bassam Radi.
