William Roebuck: There has to be a solution in Syria in the coming period

The US Deputy Envoy for the International Coalition, William Roebuck, said today, Thursday: “There must be a solution in Syria in the near future, given the changing indicators and events in the region.”

“The situation in Syria is a civil war, but it has been in stalemate for a long time, which makes predicting gains or losses very difficult,” Roebuck added.

He stressed that there will be some kind of solution in Syria, especially that the local and international players in the country are turning to this decision, but they are confused about taking the appropriate decisions.

Roebuck explained that the United States “lost its prestige” on the international scene, after its opposition to the Syrian Democratic Forces in the face of the Turkish advance.

However, he noted that  some countries are pursuing their interests, and the complicated relationship with Turkey, a member of NATO, cannot be ignored.

Turkey and Russia had agreed to a ceasefire, on the fifth of March, in the capital, Moscow, and Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan agreed to establish a security corridor and conduct joint patrols, in a move to find a solution to the situation in Syria.
