Deputy Spokesperson for the US Department of State issued a statement Wednesday morning detailing the US's stance that issues with Syria were two-pronged.

Explaining how the US was hoping to combat both Syria's nuclear noncompliance as well as the violent actions of President Bashar Assad's regime, Toner said "Syria’s failing... to meet its international obligations on the nuclear front concurrently with its failure to abide by any of its international obligations – human rights obligations – in dealing with legitimate protestors within its own country."

He added, "We’ve got problems with Syria on two fronts."
