French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, who is visiting Syrian refugee camps at the Turkey-Syria border, said that after hearing the testimonies of refugees and the horror stories from the massacre that is being conducted by the regime, Bashar Assad does not deserve to be on the face of the planet." "France's position is clear: we consider Assad to be butchering his own people. He must leave, and the sooner he goes the better," Fabius told reporters in a tent at the UN-run Zaatari refugee camp in northern Jordan, which houses around 6,000 Syrians.
"We are, at the international level, encouraging the Syrians to find a political transition. I stress that a political transition must come soon – this is the obvious solution," he added as dozens of Syrian refugees gathered outside the tent, chanting "Allahu akbar (God is greatest). Fabius and his Jordanian counterpart Nasser Judeh toured the seven-square-kilometer (two-square-mile) camp, outside the city of Mafraq, before meeting King Abdullah II in Amman for talks on the Syrian conflict.
