A defiant President Bashar al-Assad rejected calls that he seek a safe exit, vowing he will "live in Syria and die in Syria" and warning that the world cannot afford the cost of foreign intervention.

On Tuesday, British Prime Minister David Cameron floated the idea of granting Assad safe passage from the country, saying it "could be arranged," although he wanted him to face international justice.

Assad, who has made only rare public statements in recent months, also warned against foreign intervention in Syria's escalating conflict, saying such a move would have regional and global consequences.
