Speaking at a press conference, Spokesman Ned Price said that Washington has intentions to intervene in consultations with its partners and the United Nations, to promote a political settlement to end Syria’s civil war. He also added that the US will use every possible means, including economic pressure, to make pressure for significant reform and accountability.

During the press conference, it was also highlighted that Washington will hold its support to the UN’s role in conferring a political settlement in line with Security Council Resolution 2254.

Upon the request to comment on speculations claiming that the former State Department and UN official Jeffrey Feltman is considered for Antony Blinken’s special envoy to Syria, the spokesman Price refrained from making a statement.

On Monday, the State Department released a statement which condemns the terrorist attacks that led to 20 civilian casualties in northern Syria.
