The Obama administration on Monday defended its policy on Syria and disputed media reports that Secretary of State John Kerry had told a group of U.S. lawmakers the current U.S. policy on Syria is not working. The controversy began when Kerry met with a bipartisan group on the sidelines of a security conference in Munich, Germany, during the weekend. Republicans John McCain and Lindsey Graham, who were in the group, told the Daily Beast that Kerry said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was failing to uphold a promise to give up chemical weapons and peace talks in Geneva to put in place a Syrian transitional government were not succeeding. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki, who was present during the meeting with the senators in Munich, said on Monday that Kerry did not say U.S. policy on Syria was failing.
