Assad to leave post in next election, sources claim
Syria's Bashar Assad will leave his post in the next presidential elections, a source speaking to Reuters claimed.
Assad will remain president for at least a few years under an outline deal between Russia, Turkey and Iran, sources say. The sources added that he will quit in favor of a less polarizing Alawite candidate afterwards.
Iran has yet to be persuaded of that, say the sources. But either way Assad would eventually go, in a face-saving way, with guarantees for him and his family.
Turkey and Russia have recently agreed on a cease-fire deal that will ensure Assad forces and opposition fighters will not fight each other across Syria. The two sides are reportedly making efforts for a political solution in the country.
