SEOUL, March 27 (Itar-Tass) —— The conflict in Syria is unlikely to be over even after Bashar Assad steps down, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev told a news conference here on Tuesday.
“It is a very short-sighted position to believe that Assad’s resignation will put an end to all problems. Everybody understands that the conflict in this case is likely to be in place,” Medvedev said.
He stressed that he would like “all decisions on Syria’s future to be passed by the Syrian people rather than by esteemed heads of other countries.”
The Russian president said that the mission of envoy for Syria of the United Nations and the League of Arab States Kofi Annan “is the last chance to avoid a civil war in Syria.”
