MINSK - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, in an interview with Belarusian TV Channel ONT aired on Thursday, said he will not back down from fighting his enemies.

Assad also told the TV channel that the de-escalation zones give chance for insurgents to hand over weapons, and for "reconciliation" with government.
