US does not support normalising ties with Syria, Blinken says (Al Jazeera)

The United States does not intend to support any efforts to normalise ties with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad or rehabilitate him until there is irreversible progress towards a political solution in Syria, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said.

Blinken’s comments at a news conference on Wednesday came at a time when a shift was under way in the Middle East among the Arab allies of the US, who are bringing al-Assad in from the cold by reviving economic and diplomatic ties.
