Resolution vows no forces in Syria
London: A draft United Nations resolution on
Syria calls for President Bashar Assad to hand power to his
deputy and insists there will be no use of foreign forces in
The draft text calls on
Assad`s regime to immediately put "an end to all human rights
violations and attacks against those exercising their rights
to freedom of expression."

deputy" to allow a national unity government to lead
transition to a democratic system.
