MOSCOW, November 19. /TASS/. The international community is unlikely to support the nomination of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for another term, but in any case it is up to the Syrian people to decide on this, a Syrian opposition activist told a news conference on Thursday.
"I don’t think that the international community will agree with Assad’s nomination for a next term from the moral point of view," said Bassam Bitar, deputy head of the opposition Movement for Pluralistic Society. "However, it is premature to speak about this," he added.
He said first the decision on a government of national accord should be made, and then the Syrian people should be given a possibility to decide themselves on who they wanted to see as their leader.
