Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that it was impossible for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to remain in power, Anadolu Agency reported.
"He will go, sooner or later. You cannot hold on to power if your people do not accept you, believe in you. It is the case both in democratic and anti-democratic systems," Erdogan told a televised interview on Turkish private news channel NTV.
"Forces loyal to the Assad regime has no foothold left in ground war and opposition forces are in control of the field," he said.
