DOHA - US President Barack Obama's envoy charged with building the coalition against the Islamic State said on Wednesday President Bashar Assad should have no role in any long term solution to Syria's conflict.

Retired Marine General John Allen added in remarks to a conference in Qatar that there was a "very energetic" discussion among a number of countries about how to bring about a political transition in Damascus, but that such a solution would not include Assad, who has been fighting Islamist and other rebels since 2011.
