STAVANGER, Norway:  Russia’s continued support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is only serving to prolong the crisis there, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Monday.

Speaking to NATO’s parliamentary assembly meeting in Norway, he said: “Russia should play a constructive role in the fight against (Islamic State). To support the Assad regime is not constructive. This is only prolonging the war in Syria.”
