France: Western Countries Seeking Asylum for Assad

Western countries have opened negotiations with Russia regarding Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and the country in which he will receive asylum, according to a French diplomatic source, cited Thursday evening by the Al-Arabiya network.

The source said that Iran wanted to participate in the international conference about the Syrian civil war. However, he said, it was agreed with the Iranians that there was no agreement so the meeting ended in failure.
