BEIRUT (AP) -- Syria's embattled President Bashar Assad says he will not leave his country.

In an interview, Assad said he will `live and die' in Syria.

His comments come two days after British Prime Minister David Cameron suggested that Assad could be allowed safe passage out of the country if that would guarantee an end to the nation's civil war.

In the interview with Russia Today TV Assad says he is not a puppet of the West.

He says: "I am Syrian, made in Syria, and I will live and die in Syria."
