Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Thursday rejected calls that he seek a safe exit, vowing he would “live and die in Syria”, in an interview with Russian Arabic-language channel Rusiya Al-Yaum.

He also warned that a foreign intervention to deal with Syria’s conflict would have “global consequences.”
