Syria's vice president has said that neither the Syria army nor the anti-government rebels can win the 21-month-long civil war that has claimed 40,000 lives, the highest-ranking official in President Bashar Assad's government to suggest publicly that the longtime authoritarian regime cannot succeed.
"It may very well be too late [to reach a compromise] … because the opposition feels the wind in its sails and what the regime could obtain a year ago it cannot obtain now," Mr. Rabinovich said.
"It might be an indication that people in the inner core of the regime are beginning to contemplate some kind of political solution that they had not been willing to contemplate earlier," said Itamar Rabinovich, a former Israeli ambassador to the United States and professor emeritus at Tel Aviv University.
