US State Dept. Spokeswoman Says Report of Damascus Meeting Does Not Reflect Reality
A US State Department spokeswoman said on Wednesday that a report that US officials visited Damascus in June to meet with Syrian officials did not reflect reality.
“It doesn’t reflect any reality that we are certainly aware of,” said spokeswoman Heather Nauert. “We’ve seen that report. It doesn’t reflect what the US government is tracking at this point … I am not aware of any meeting to that effect.”
