US vows to step up pressure on

Assad regime as talks fail


Rancho Mirage (US), February 16 - As Syrian peace talks in Geneva floundered, US President Barack Obama has vowed to step up pressure on the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. Obama's remarks came as he hosted Jordan's King Abdullah II at the Sunnylands retreat in Palm Springs, California, to address issues including the flood of Syrian refugees into Jordan.
The US leader said both he and the Jordanian king "recognise that we can't just treat the symptoms" of the Syrian crisis. "We're also going to have to solve the underlying problem -- a regime led by Bashar al-Assad that has shown very little regard for the well-being of his people.
"We are going to need a political transition in that region." "We don't expect to solve this any time in the short term so there are going to be some immediate steps that we have to take to help the humanitarian situation there," Obama said.
"There will be some intermediate steps that we can take to apply more pressure to the Assad regime, and we're going to be continuing to work with all the parties concerned to try to move forward on a diplomatic solution," he said, without specifying what those steps may be.
At the meeting Obama pledged $1 billion in loan to Jordan and a renewal of a five-year memorandum of understanding.
