Syrian President Bashar Assad said that his country was taking security measures to deal with the months-long uprising by protesters demanding his ouster.

The Syrian president refused to divulge what the measures are, but said that the situation in his country was going to return to normal, and that the measures his security forces have taken are succeeding.

Assad made the comments in a national Syrian TV interview.
