Clinton: US, Russia back mediation on Syria

Published: 12.07.12, 15:23 / Israel News

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says the US and Russia have agreed to support mediation efforts with all parties in Syria to bring about a political transition. But she says Syrian President Bashar Assad must leave power to secure a democratic future for the Arab country. Washington and Moscow have clashed repeatedly throughout Syria's 21-month civil war over how to stem the violence.


In a new effort, Clinton met with Russia's foreign minister and the UN peace envoy for Syria to try to chart a new path forward. (AP)
