It is hard to maintain faith in diplomatic process in Syria

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – It is hard to maintain faith in a diplomatic process to end Syria’s 5-1/2 year civil war given the assault on Aleppo by the Russian-backed Syrian government, U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner told CNN on Friday.

“It’s hard to continue to believe in a diplomatic process here given what’s happening on the ground,” Toner said on CNN.

On Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Washington was on the verge of suspending diplomacy with Moscow on Syria but it has yet to announce that it is cutting off talks.
