BEIRUT - Syrian President Bashar Assad, facing three months of protests against his rule, said on Monday a national dialogue would start soon.

In a speech in Damascus, Assad also said he would ask the Justice Ministry to study expanding a recent amnesty, but said it was important to differentiate between "saboteurs" and people with legitimate demands.
