LONDON - British Prime Minister David Cameron was quoted by Sky News as saying on Sunday that Syrian President Bashar Assad could stay on as part of a transitional government but should not be part of Syria's future in the long run.

Sky's correspondent traveling with Cameron to the United States said Cameron was not ruling out that Assad could be part of a transition, but "what he is very clear about is that Assad cannot be part of Syria's future in the long run".

Earlier, Britain's Telegraph newspaper quoted a government source as saying that Cameron was open to keeping Assad in power in the short term while a unity government was formed in the country after more than four years of civil war.
