Clinton: Syria’s Assad ‘Must Go’

April 2, 2012 by staff 

Clinton: Syria’s Assad ‘Must Go’, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said that, despite a newly-brokered cease fire agreement with Syrian President Bashar al Assad, his days as president are numbered as his forces continue the bloody clash with Syrian opposition groups.

“We think Assad must go,” Clinton told ABC today after attending the one-day Friends of the Syrian People conference in Istanbul. “The sooner the better for everyone concerned.”

But she added that the process must be multi-pronged.

The UN-Arab League peace plan and cease fire negotiated last week by envoy Kofi Annan is a good beginning, she said, but Assad has yet to stop the violence.

“There has to be a timeline,” Clinton said regarding the diplomatic process. “It can’t go on indefinitely.”
