Syria's Assad says still pursuing political solution for rebel-held south

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said it is not yet decided whether the situation in Syria's rebel-held southwest will be resolved through reconciliation or military means.

"We are giving the political process a chance. If that doesn't succeed, we have no other option but to liberate it by force," Assad said in an interview on Wednesday with Iranian channel al-Alam News carried in full by Syrian state news agency SANA.
