MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Friday dismissed as "dirty leaks" reports on an alleged agreement between Russia and the United States on the future of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

"Our American partners cannot publicly call into question this formula that ... only the people of Syria decide all the questions about the future of Syria," Lavrov told a news conference.

"And in these dirty leaks which distort reality we obviously see Washington's inability to force some of its allies in the region and in Europe ... to give the Syrian people a sovereign right to decide their destiny as well as who will be their leader," Lavrov added.
