The New York Times – Past Fellow Andrew Tabler is quoted Mark Landler’s latest piece on the recent agreement for a partial truce in Syria.  Tabler, whose ICWA Fellowship took place in Syria and Lebanon and who is currently an Syria expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy said about the agreement; “Washington’s stated policy is not to end the Syrian war. They just want to settle it down so it boils a little more slowly. It’s yet another attempt to contain a conflict that has been uncontainable.” Find out more about the U.S.-Russia deal in Landler’s full piece.
