Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Thursday that the United States is seeking a future Syria without Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. Speaking after his talks with U.N. special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura, Tillerson said, “We do not believe that there is a future for the Assad regime and Assad family. The reign of the Assad family is coming to an end.” Another round of U.N.-backed peace talks on the ongoing Syrian conflict are slated to resume next month.
