BEIRUT - Syria's Information Ministry said on Friday that comments by Russia's ambassador to France that President Bashar Assad has accepted leaving power in an orderly way were "completely devoid of truth".

The ministry statement, flashed on state television, came in response to remarks by Moscow's envoy to Paris who said that by accepting a recent international declaration which foresaw a transition towards a more democratic Syria, Assad had "accepted to leave, but in an orderly way."
