Two European countries and several Arab states involved in the development of a plan for the departure of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad of his country, said a member of the Syrian National Council of salvation, Ahmed Ramadan, was quoted as saying pan-Arab Ash-Sharq al-Awsat on Thursday.
“We know that two European countries and several Arab countries are working towards the departure of el-Assad of Syria,” said Mr. Ramadan, without specifying which countries it was.
According to the opponent, a resignation is the only solution that would allow Assad to avoid the fate of the former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.
Also according to Mr. Ramadan, “the success of the revolution in Syria depends on the degree of isolation of the regime.” In this context, Tehran’s position, which supports the Syrian regime, is “a mistake,” said Ramadan.
Since mid-March, Syria has been rocked by a protest movement against the regime. According to the latest UN estimates, the suppression of the revolt would have done more than 5,000 dead. Damascus denies сe figure and says the country is plagued by gangs financed from abroad.
