Gates: Assad's legitimacy open to question

Published: 06.10.11, 12:59 / Israel News

US Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Friday the legitimacy of the rule of Syrian President Bashar Assad was open to question after the killing of protesters by security forces.


"I would say the slaughter of innocent lives in Syria should be a problem and a concern for everybody," Gates told a seminar in Brussels. "Whether Assad still has the legitimacy to govern his own country, I think is a question everyone needs to consider," he said. (Reuters)
