Obama: U.S. Will Work With Russia, Iran To End Syria Crisis

By Teresa Welsh, Sep 28, 2015 US News

UNITED NATIONS – President Barack Obama said Monday the U.S. would be willing to work with Russia and Iran to end the civil war in Syria, acknowledging the current U.S. strategy has done nothing to curb the violence and rise of the Islamic State group.

"The United States is prepared to work with any nation, including Russia and Iran, to resolve the conflict," Obama told world leaders gathered at the U.N. General Assembly. "But we must recognize that there cannot be, after so much bloodshed, so much carnage, a return to the pre-war status quo."

The U.S. has had fraught relations with both Russia and Iran, but the two countries remain important players in Syria. They continue to support President Bashar Assad, whom the U.S. and its allies say cannot be a part of the political solution needed to end the civil war. At least 200,000 people have been killed and millions have been displaced inside Syria and to both neighboring and European countries.
