Syria's chief opposition negotiator Nasr al-Hariri on Thursday decried "US silence" over a Syrian government offensive in southwest Syria, where Washington agreed a "de-escalation" zone last year with Jordan and Damascus' ally Russia.

Speaking in Riyadh, he said that only a "malicious deal" could explain the lack of a US response over the government's Russia-backed campaign in the southwest, after Washington used military force against attacks on allies elsewhere in Syria.
