LOS CABOS, Mexico - President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that Syrians should be the ones to decide whether President Bashar Assad remains in power, apparently contradicting reports that he no longer backs the Syrian leader.

Putin made the comments shortly after British Prime Minister David Cameron said the Russian leader had made clear he does not want Assad to remain in charge.
