      Syria: No One Can Stop Assad from Running Again

      Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister said on Thursday that nobody can stop embattled President Bashar Al-Assad from seeking re-election.

      "Nobody has the right to interfere and say he must run or he should not run," Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Muqdad told the AFP news agency, shortly after Russia criticized statements that Assad wanted to seek another term in 2014.
