US Secretary of State John Kerry admitted Wednesday that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was making gains on the ground, but he denied US policy in Syria was failing.
"It's fair to say that Assad has improved his position a little bit, yes. But he's still not winning. This is a stalemate," Kerry told CNN television in an interview.
But asked whether he believed that America's policy in the war-torn country, which has seen a mounting death toll in its three-year conflict, had failed, he replied "No."
