DUBAI - Syrian President Bashar Assad told Iranian state television on Thursday a solution imposed on Syria from outside was unacceptable because only Syrians could resolve the country's crisis.

"No non-Syrian model is acceptable because no one but us knows how to solve the problem," Assad said during the rare hour-long interview.

Referring to strained relations with Turkey following the Syria's shooting down of one of its military fighter planes, Assad said there was a difference between the stance of Turkish officials and the positive view of Turkish people towards Syria.
