US State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland on Sunday reiterated her country's longstanding call for Syrian President Bashar Assad to step down.

"Assad has lost all legitimacy and must step aside to enable a political solution and a democratic transition that meets the aspirations of the Syrian people," she said in a statement, adding that the Syrian regime is "deliberately stoking sectarian tensions and continuing to kill its own people."
