Press Releases: The Secretary's Special Representative for Syria Engagement, Ambassador James Jeffrey Travels to Turkey, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia

The Secretary’s Special Representative for Syria Engagement, Ambassador James Jeffrey, will travel to Turkey, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia, October 15-23, for discussions with allies and partners about Syria.

In Turkey, Ambassador Jeffrey will meet with Turkish Government officials, Syrian opposition leaders, and Syrian civil society groups and will reaffirm the Administration’s commitment to achieving a political solution to the conflict in line with UN Security Resolution 2254 that produces a secure, stable, and pluralistic Syria, as well as a Syria that ceases being a state sponsor of terrorism, does not threaten its neighbors, and removes all Iranian-led and Iranian proxy militias.

In Qatar and Saudi Arabia, he will reiterate the U.S. position that any military offensive in Idlib would be a reckless escalation of the conflict in Syria and the region, risk the lives of Syrian civilians, and destroy civilian infrastructure.

Throughout his trip, Ambassador Jeffrey will seek to meet representatives of the Syrian people and reiterate to them our full support for U.N. Security Council Resolution 2254, and UN Special Envoy de Mistura’s efforts to stand up the Syrian Constitutional Committee as quickly as possible.
