Obama: Assad cannot regain his legitimacy

Obama says Syrian regime must keep its side of the diplomatic bargain.

He says the UN must ensure the diplomatic process is upheld.

And an agreement on the chemical weapons should energize efforts for a wider, lasting peace in Syria. That, he says, cannot be achieved by military action.

“A leader who slaughtered his citizens” and gassed them, he says, cannot regain legitimacy. Russia needs to understand this.
