France and Russia Discuss Post Assad Scenarios
France 24 – France’s foreign minister said Friday that talks were under way with Russia on Syria’s future if President Bashar al-Assad is ousted, and that Paris may supply communication equipment to Syrian rebels.
“The Russians are not today attached to the person of Bashar al-Assad. They clearly see he is a tyrant and a murderer. But they are sensitive about who might take his place, if Assad is ousted. The discussion is about that,” Laurent Fabius said.
