Hague: Iran, Hezbollah increasing support for Assad

Iran and its militant Shiite Lebanese ally Hezbollah are "propping up" President Bashar Assad and giving him increasing support, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Wednesday.


Speaking before a meeting of the Friends of Syria alliance in the Jordanian capital, Hague said Britain would urge international powers to set a date in the next few days for an international conference to try to end the two-year-old conflict engulfing Syria and threatening regional stability.
