Del Ponte: President al-Assad is the only partner to have political 
solution in Syria
Wednesday, 18 March 2015

Former Swiss Chief Prosecutor  Carla Del Ponte affirmed that President 
Bashar al-Assad is the only partner to reach a political solution to the 
crisis in Syria and end what is going on here.

“Solution is impossible without President al-Assad,” Del Ponte, also a 
member in the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss RTS TV in an 
interview broadcast on Wednesday, pointing out to “the President’s 
popular powerfulness on the ground.”

Del Ponte added that she joins many voices which believe that the sole 
solution to the crisis in Syria will be through dialogue and negotiation 
with the Syrian leadership, affirming “this is possible only in the 
presence of President al-Assad.

“President al-Assad enjoys a great power, without him, negotiation is 
impossible,” Del Ponte said, referring to the improvement
