Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has no choice. He must submit to the will of the Syrian people, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was quoted today by TRT Haber TV channel as saying.
Erdogan said that Syrians do not trust their president, as Assad has lost legitimacy.
Anti-government disturbances have continued in Syria for more than a year and a half. According to the UN human rights commissioner, the total number of victims of the conflict is nearing 60,000. More than 230,000 have become refugees with around three million in need of humanitarian assistance. Syrian authorities say they oppose the well-armed militants.
