BEIRUT: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says Syrian President Bashar Assad has not asked Russia to ensure his safety in case he leaves his presidential post, a Russian news agency reported Friday.

Lavrov said Assad “reiterated on several occasions that he is not planning to leave his country; he is staying with his people and will carry out his duties,” RIA Novosti said.

The Russian premier said Assad can take part in the upcoming Syrian presidential election.
