MOSCOW: Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Thursday that the fate of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was not being discussed at the moment, RIA news agency reported.

“No one is talking about any personalities now,” Gatilov said. “This is why this question about the future – who will be the president and how it will all look like – is first of all an issue (expected) as a result from intra-Syrian negotiations.”
