Damascus, Syria –Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said in a statement that the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria may fall “at any moment”. 

Sisi’s statement came during a meeting with Lebanese Prime Minister Tammam Salam in Cairo earlier this week.

The Egyptian leader told his Lebanese counterpart that his country needed to prepare for the eventuality that Assad would be toppled.

On Friday, Russian President Vladimir Putin reaffirmed his country’s consistent position on supporting the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, warning that any use of force by West to end the civil war would worsen the situation in Syria.

“Our fear is that Syria could plunge into the same situation as Libya and Iraq,” Putin told reporters in St Petersburg.
