Will relations normalize? Assad statement from Blinken

While it was wondered what kind of stance the US would take after some Arab countries took steps to normalize relations with Syria, the country’s Foreign Minister Antony Blinken made statements on the subject.

Blinken held a joint press conference with Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and United Arab Emirates (UAE) Foreign Minister Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, after meeting in Washington on the anniversary of the normalization agreement between the two countries.

Answering the question that many Arab countries have been trying to normalize relations with Assad recently, Blinken stated that the main purpose of the Joe Biden administration in Syria is to raise humanitarian aid for people in need and to reduce conflicts as much as possible.


Commenting on the Arab countries’ attempts to re-recognize Assad, Blinken said:

“The things we have not done and do not intend to do until now, unless there is irreversible progress towards a political solution that, in our view, is essential and vital in our view in Syria; we support the efforts to normalize or improve relations with Assad, lift any sanctions and oppose his efforts to rebuild.” change.”
