Question: When was the last time Ambassador Ford met with Syrian Government officials?
Answer: Ambassador Ford has spoken with Syrian Government officials several times recently, including this morning. He regularly engages with the Syrian Government and the Syrian people. Time and time again, he has demonstrated the importance of his presence in Damascus, bearing witness to events on the ground and challenging the regime’s propaganda. He continues to demonstrate U.S. solidarity with the Syrian people, and to deliver strong messages to the Syrian Government. We will not, however, discuss the specifics of private diplomatic discussions.
