White House calls on Syria leader to change course

WASHINGTON, April 29 (Reuters) - The White House, which issued new sanctions on Syria on Friday, called for President Bashar al-Assad to “change course now.”

“In addition to actions that we are taking, the United States believes that Syria’s deplorable actions toward its people warrant a strong international response,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said in a statement. (Reporting by Tabassum Zakaria; Editing by Eric Walsh)
