Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has told Russian media he will not quit under foreign pressure, saying that is a decision for the Syrian people.

Western powers and much of the Syrian opposition say it is not conceivable for Assad to lead a post-war Syria.

Assad said Iran was supporting his government "politically, economically and militarily" but denied that Iranian ground forces had been sent.

The latest comments come as Russia increases its presence in Syria.
