"US to work diplomatically to oust president Assad"

The United States has signaled on an open-ended military presence in Syria as part of a broader U-S strategy to prevent the resurgence of the Deash terror group.

In a speech at Stanford University, the U-S secretary of State said Washington’s military and diplomatic presence in Syria is crucial to U-S national interest. Rex Tillerson added that the Trump administration's new Syria strategy largely involves an increased diplomatic action with emphasis on political solution to the crisis.

The top U-S diplomat, however, made it clear that Washington would work diplomatically toward the ouster of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power. He also called for closer cooperation with Russia to avoid conflict in the de-escalation zones in Syria.
