British PM wants transition in Syria, not revolution or civil war


14:08, March 15, 2012

WASHINGTON, March 14 (Xinhua) -- British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Wednesday that he wanted to see a political transition in Syria, not a revolution or a civil war.

"What we want is the quickest way to stop the killing. That is through transition rather than revolution or civil war," said Cameron at a joint press conference with U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House.

But he meanwhile warned that if Syrian President Bashar al- Assad does not step aside, then civil war or revolution is the " inevitable consequence."

For the part of Obama, he stressed the current focus on delivering humanitarian aid to people in need, vowing to keep increasing pressure on Assad.

Noting that Syria's opposition is growing stronger, Obama reiterated "Assad will leave power."
