Assad calls for mobilisation in rare speech - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Assad calls for mobilisation in rare speech - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation): "In a rare speech Syria's president Bashar al-Assad has called for a national dialogue to end the country's 21-month conflict, but stressed he would not talk to those who have taken up arms against his regime.

Describing the Western-backed opposition as "slaves" of foreign powers and admitting that Syria was in the throes of a "real war", the president urged opponents at home to join his regime in ending the bloody conflict."
