Syrian President Bashar al-Assad must step down if joint UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan's peace plan is to be saved, the head of the main opposition coalition said on Wednesday.
"An international understanding for Assad's stepping-down is the only way to save Annan's plan and the political solution; otherwise the situation is on the verge of explosion and will threaten the entire region," said Syrian National Council chief Burhan Ghalioun.
In a statement issued after a telephone conversation with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle, Ghalioun stressed the "necessity that the international community moves quickly to put an end to the massacres."
Either the international community should "work with Russia to overcome the division in the Security Council, or with the Friends of Syria" group, the statement added.
