WASHINGTON, D.C. — The United States hopes to prevent a civil war from erupting in Syria after the defeat of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters Tuesday.

A brutal civil war between the opposition and forces loyal to dictator Bashar al-Assad, who is backed by Russia and Iran, has been raging in Syria since 2011.

The Secretary of State declared:

If we think about Syria post the defeat of ISIS, what we are hoping to avoid is an outbreak of a civil war because we really, as you know, have two conflicts underway in Syria; the war against ISIS, [and] the civil war that created the conditions for ISIS to emerge.

Again, we’re working closely with Russia and other parties to see if we can agree on a path forward on how to stabilize Syria.

Although he conceded that the United States does not approve of Russia’s support for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, he also said that both countries are committed to the stability of Syria post-ISIS.
