ANTALYA, Turkey - Syrian President Bashar Assad must step down to pave the way for democracy after an uprising against his rule showed he had lost legitimacy, the country's opposition in exile said on Wednesday.

"The revolution inside Syria has declared 'the people want the overthrow of the regime'. We echo it. The price of the blood being shed can only be freedom," Abdelrazzaq Eid, a senior figure in the Damascus Declaration umbrella opposition group, told the conference in the Turkish coastal city of Antalya.

The gathering is the first official meeting of activists and opposition figures in exile since protests erupted 10 weeks ago in Deraa, a poor, agricultural city in the southern Hauran Plain.
