The State Department claims that the Syrians do not want to see Assad as their president

The head of the press service of the State department Heather Nauert noted that the elections of the new Syrian leader should be attended by residents who were forced to leave their homeland.
The US State Department claims that the Syrians no longer want Bashar Assad to lead an Arab republic. Such position was expressed on Tuesday by the head of the press service of the foreign policy department Heather Nauert.
“We do not believe that most Syrians want to support Bashar Assad as president,” she said.
The diplomat stressed that residents who were forced to leave their homeland should take part in the election of the new president of Syria. Imagine if people in Syria, plus the diaspora, can vote, will they choose Bashar Assad, the man responsible for the deaths of many men, women and children? I doubt it, but in the end, everything will depend on the Syrian people… “said the representative of the department.
According to Nauert, many countries, including Russia, support negotiations in Geneva on settlement the issue in the Arab Republic. “This is the best and most constructive process,” she said, stressing that “the political process will be very long.”
