The administration is calling for direct talks with the Assad regime

CORKER: "We’re going to do nothing. Lavrov knows we’re going to do nothing, so what is the leverage that he has? Seriously, it has to be somewhat of an embarrassment for a Secretary of State to go into these meetings knowing that Russia stepped into the vacuum five or six months ago, has all the leverage in determining the future of Syria, and basically you have secretary Kerry with hat in hand going to these meetings. He has no leverage, none, zero. We lost our leverage when we didn’t enforce the red line back in 2013. We lost our leverage a year and a half ago when we had an agreement in principle to deal with a no-fly zone along the Turkish border and in the northwest triangle of Aleppo to give these refugees a place to go, but we didn’t do it. The President didn't act."
