PARIS - French President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Thursday that the solution for the crisis in Syria was the establishment of humanitarian corridors which would allow the opposition to President Bashar Assad to survive.
"Bashar al-Assad is lying ... He wants to wipe Homs off the map just like (former Libyan President Muammar) Gaddafi wanted to destroy Benghazi," Sarkozy said ahead of a meeting for foreign ministers on Syria in Paris on Thursday. "We called this meeting to gather all those who cannot stand that a dictator is killing his people."
