Washington has admitted that the international community will not support it if it tries to change the Syrian regime, but has confirmed that it seeks to modify the "nature and behavior" of the authorities in this country.
"The United States and all the institutions of power in our country are committed to the need for the full withdrawal of all forces under the leadership of Iran from all of Syria's territory, and to ensure a political process that does not return," James Jeffrey, the US special envoy to the US State Department, told Congress. With the changing nature of the Syrian government and its behavior, because we will not see without an end to this conflict. "
"We are not committed to any official position whatsoever, except to consider that Assad is the worst person in the basket, whatever the place," Jeffrey said.
"Whether it is good or bad, but the bulk of the international community will not support us in attempts to change the regime, and this is why we want a tangible and noticeable change of the Syrian government."
In the meantime, Jeffrey said that the United States will obstruct the international community's assistance to the authorities in Damascus in the reconstruction of Syria until the activation of the political settlement of the crisis in the country.
In recent months, the administration of US President Donald Trump has issued conflicting statements about its position on the issue of Assad's survival in power.
On Aug. 28, US Defense Secretary James Matisse confirmed that the United States' goal in Syria was to secure the termination of its current president.
"Our aim is to turn the Syrian crisis into the framework of the Geneva process so that the Syrian people can choose for themselves a government not led by Bashar al-Assad," Mattis said.
"What is happening in Syria is a civil war," Mattis said. "Assad must not have a future in any forthcoming Syrian solution."
But in late September, US Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Nicky Hayley, announced that the United States was not seeking to remove Assad, considering his staying in power a matter of time.
Since its former president Barack Obama, the United States has provided financial and military support to forces under what it calls moderate opposition in Syria, which is fighting the Assad government accused by Washington of war crimes against its people, including the use of chemical weapons.
Unlike his predecessor, Trump has ordered three attacks on Syrian government sites over the past two years on the pretext of using chemical weapons.
