WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Gabbard "felt it was important to meet with a number of individuals and groups including religious leaders, humanitarian workers, refugees and government and community leaders," Latimer told Foreign Policy.

Latimer did not comment on whether Gabbard met with Syrian President Bashar Assad.
