Russia says it won't host Assad but others welcome

Russia's foreign minister says Moscow would welcome any country's offer of a safe haven to Syrian President Bashar Assad, but underlined that Moscow itself has no intention of giving him shelter if he steps down.


Russia has repeatedly used its veto right along with China at the UN Security Council to protect its old ally from international sanctions, but it has increasingly sought to distance itself from Assad. (AP)
