Briefing: Assad cannot be an ally in the fight against Daesh

In response to the report by the Foreign Affairs Committee suggesting that the UK should cooperate with Assad to combat Daesh, we released both a press release and a Briefing exposing how delusional and childish this report is. We emphasised that Assad enabled Daesh's creation and expansion, is not serious about combating Daesh, and has no incentive to fight the group, and therefore cannot be taken as a reliable partner in the fight against terrorism. On the other hand, we emphasised that the moderate opposition is the best ally in the fight against Daesh but pointed out that it is unrealistic to suggest that the Free Syrian Army cooperate with Assad to fight Daesh.
