China and Russia have not agreed to any plan for the removal of President Bashar al-Assad from power, this was announced by the U.S. leader Barack Obama at the G20 summit in Mexico. He admitted that he failed to persuade Vladimir Putin and Hu Jintao to change their position.
“I wouldn’t suggest that at this point the United States and the rest of the international community are aligned with Russia and China in their positions, but I do think they recognize the grave dangers of all-out civil war,” said President Obama.
The conflict continues in Syria. the victims, according to the UN, were about 10,000 people. The U.S. State Department regularly calls Bashar Assad a “dictator” who has “hands stained with blood.”
