Jimmy Carter urges Obama to solve Syrian crisis with Russia, Iran

The 39th President of the United States, Jimmy Carter, has become the latest politician urging the United States to join forces with Russia and Iran in order to find a solution to solve the protracted Syrian crisis.

Carter considers finding a solution to the deadly conflict, which has left over 220,000 people killed and more than 7.6 million displaced, to be the first major step on the path to tackling the overwhelming influx of refugees from the Middle East and elsewhere.

“The best thing obviously is to deal with Syria,” since the majority of refugees come from this country, the former president said at an annual event held at the Carter Center.
