The United States’ ambassador to the United Nations says the U.S. position on Syrian President Bashar Assad has not changed: “There is going to have to be a political transition, and Assad will have to go.”

Samantha Power spoke to reporters Wednesday ahead of Friday’s major international conference on Syria in New York.

Power says the talks will look at the “gaps” between American and Russian and Iranian positions on the fate of Assad — and she says those gaps remain “very real.”

The U.N. Security Council is expected to consider a resolution later Friday endorsing the talks.

Power says the resolution would be the first high-profile gesture by the often divided council to “show its unity around the importance of achieving a political settlement and a political transition.”

  1. Hmm, the Republicans want Obama to go, and the Democrats (and Republicans) want the Tea Party to go.

      And Trump wants everyone to go …. :-)))) A guy named Carter wants the border to Canada armed, now that we let some refugees in. Considering the way they attack our dollar, and everyone else’s, assume little cross-border shopping will occur.

      Trumpisms with a “dated hairstyle nobody likes”.
