Syrian President Bashar al-Assad declared that the United States and its allies were responsible for the failure of the last truce in Aleppo.

The President said that Washington always demanded a ceasefire only when the moment was beneficial for militants, who would have time to pull up fresh forces into the city and would get support (money and weapons).

Bashar al-Assad declared: «So, who's to blame It's the United States and its allies, the Western countries, because for them, terrorists and terrorism are a card they want to play on the Syrian arena, it's not a value, they're not against terrorists. For them, supporting the terrorists is a war of attrition against Syria, against Iran, against Russia, that's how they look at it. That's why not only this ceasefire; every attempt regarding ceasefire or political moving or political initiative, every failure of these things, the United States was to be blamed».
