WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday Syria clearly would be better off without President Bashar Assad and called on nations that buy oil or sell arms to Syria to cut those ties.

"We urge those countries still buying Syrian oil and gas, those countries still sending Assad weapons, those countries whose political and economic support give him comfort in his brutality, to get on the right side of history," she told reporters after a meeting with Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store.
