Biden: U.S., Turkey Reviewing Ways to Help Syria

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Sunday that the United States and Turkey are reviewing how to help Syria if President Basher al-Assad’s regime falls, Reuters reported.

Speaking to reporters travelling with him to Athens from Istanbul, Biden said of his discussions with Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, “There was a sense in our discussions that it would be able to be handled without any conflagration going beyond Syria, and that it could be localized to Syria.”
