Washington, SANA – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged that the United States will have to negotiate with President Bashar al-Assad to end the war in Syria.

In an interview given to CBS on Sunday, Kerry said that the U.S. will have to negotiate in the end, claiming that Washington had always been willing to negotiate on the basis of the Geneva I process in attempt to deny the fact that his administration is responsible for hindering reaching a political solution in Syria.

In the interview, Kerry did not repeat the standard U.S. line that President al-Assad “had lost all legitimacy and has to go,” claiming that it was President al-Assad who didn’t want to negotiate and saying that this may require increased pressure.

Kerry said the United States and other countries, which he did not name, were exploring ways to reignite the diplomatic process to end the crisis in Syria, despite the fact that the U.S. had been working towards the militarization of the crisis in Syria for four years and supported terrorists that Washington likes to label as “moderate opposition.”
