Syria's deputy prime minister has said the government is prepared to discuss the exit of Bashar al-Assad, but that the president's resignation cannot be a pre-condition for talks.

Speaking on a visit to Moscow, Qadri Jamil also said the West "is looking for a pretext to intervene militarily".

Echoing Russia's foreign minister, he said there must be no intervention.

The comments follow US President Obama's warning that the US may intervene, if Syria uses chemical weapons.
