Assad could share power with opposition

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad is ready to bring opposition forces to the management of the state.

He stressed that we need to think about political reformations in this country. "We know of President Assad's readiness to bring the healthy forces of the opposition into this process and into the management of the government," RIA Novosti cited Putin as saying.

He noted that joint efforts in the fight against terror are on the first stage today. "Without this it is impossible to solve other difficult and growing problems, including the problem of refugees,” Putin concluded.
