As reported by the Rosbalt.ru, Tunisia has announced its readiness to grant the current Syrian President Bashar Assad the political asylum.
"We are ready to grant the Syrian President Bashar Assad the asylum in Tunisa, if it helps stop the bloodbath in Syria, continuing for many months", the edition led the statement by the official representative of the Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki. He added that Tunisia has agreed to provide the asylum to the family members of the current Syrian president.
Tunisia was one of the most active countries in the Arab world, supporting Assad's resign, having started the procedure for recognition of the illegitimacy of the Syrian leadership.
Recall, the revolt against the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria began in March 2011. According to human rights organizations, since that time the government has repeatedly used the army to suppress the peaceful protests. The total number of those killed in the clashes, according to the UN, has exceeded 5.4 thousand.
The U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that Assad could be convicted by the international court of war crimes, as recalled by the Gazeta.ru.
