US envoy says Syria’s conflict will find no solution with Assad in power

US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has said there can be no political solution to the conflict in Syria until President Bashar al-Assad is in power.

“There’s not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime,” she said in an interview airing Sunday on CNN.

“It just — if you look at his actions, if you look at the situation, it’s going to be hard to see a government that’s peaceful and stable with Assad,” she added.

Haley’s remarks came just a day after she warned that Washington was prepared to take further actions in Syria during a special session at the UN following a US military strike against a Syrian air base.

President Donald Trump ordered the strike in response to a chemical weapons attack against civilians earlier in the week, which US officials say was carried out on the orders of the Assad government.
