Russia may convince USA of Bashar Assad's legitimate presidency

Mark Toner, a spokesman for the US State Department, stated that the United States did not demand  immediate resignation of Bashar Assad.

However, he added, the US still considers the resignation of the legitimate president of Syria in the long term.

"Assad does not have to leave tomorrow or the next day," Toner said. "He cannot be part of that transitional government, however it ends. He - for his many crimes against his people, for his brutality, cannot be a part of that ultimate transitional government. So, but we've not said that he has to leave tomorrow, that he has to be - that he can't be part of the transitional process," Mark toner added.

The US State Department spokesman said that, in his view, it is not only Washington, but many other governments in the world that share this position on Assad.

According to Time, if Russian President Putin succeeds in convincing Obama that the legitimate president of Syria should remain such, then it would be considered a triumphant victory for Moscow.
