Assad: Syria transitional govt must include regime and opposition

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad says the transitional government of his war-torn country should include both the regime and opposition, according to an interview published on Wednesday, according to AFP.

Assad told Russia's RIA Novosti state news agency in comments translated into Russian that it would be "logical for there to be independent forces, opposition forces and forces loyal to the government represented there."
