Obama Admin abandons diplomacy with Syria Andrew Taylor 20 03 14

After the Obama Administration abruptly closed the Syrian embassy as well as the country's two consulates in Michigan and Texas, Russia's Foreign Ministry accused the U.S. of abandoning diplomacy as the primary means to end the war in Syria.

“By making such a unilateral move, our American partners in essence are depriving themselves of the role of co-sponsor of the process of political regulation in Syria,” said the Russian foreign ministry.

Russia is concluding that the US is putting regime-change on the front-burner in preference to the destruction of Syria's chemical arsenal and the welfare of the Syrian people.

“Resolving these (issues) without direct cooperation with the Syrian government is impossible,” the statement said.
