Russia managed to save Assad as president, London says

Britain is resigned to Syrian President Bashar al Assad remaining in power and Russia gaining a new sphere of influence in the region, the foreign secretary has signalled, Sky News reports.

But, speaking exclusively to Sky News, Jeremy Hunt cautioned that Moscow has also taken on responsibility for securing peace in the country because of its support for the regime.

It is the first time a British minister has spoken so frankly about the reality on the ground in Syria, as Assad's forces strengthen their grip on power after regaining areas seized in a rebel uprising - supported by the UK and its allies - that began in 2011.
