Syrian people do not want Assad as leader - Haley | Reuters

UNITED NATIONS The United States does not believe that the Syrian people want President Bashar al-Assad as their leader any longer, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Monday.

"We don't think the people want Assad anymore," Haley said at a news conference on Monday, when asked about U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's remarks in the Turkish capital Ankara last week, in which he said that Assad's status would be decided by the Syrian people.
