Why Syria will be low on Biden's list of foreign policy priorities

Published:

Dr Christopher Phillips, reader in International Relations, has written an opinion piece for the Middle East Eye on what Joe Biden's election means for US policy in Syria. Phillips writes: "Will Biden attempt to step up US involvement? It is worth recalling his role on Syria policy as Obama’s vice president. Unlike former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, he was sceptical of deep involvement in Syria’s civil war. He was unenthusiastic about arming the opposition, fearing the radicals among them."
