Earlier, Biden, speaking at a press conference in Istanbul after meeting with Prime Minister Davutoglu, said: “We do not know whether it will be better if we are able to reach a political solution, but we are ready, if it is impossible, to find a military solution to this operation and fight back the IS”.
“The Vice President meant that as we look for a political solution (end) of the civil war in Syria, we are simultaneously implementing a military decision against the ISIS. There are no changes in US policy, ”the White House said in a comment.
As already reported, the inter-Syrian negotiations are scheduled for January 25, but can be postponed to a later date. The main reason for this is the discontent of the Syrian authorities with the opposition delegation. According to the government, it includes representatives of terrorist organizations with which Damascus is not going to negotiate anything.
