Iran, Hezbollah increasing support for Assad: UK

World Bulletin/News Desk

British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Wednesday Iran and its ally Hezbollah were "propping up" Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and giving him increasing support.

Speaking before a meeting of the Friends of Syria alliance in the Jordanian capital, Hague said Britain would urge international powers to set a date in the next few days for an international conference to try to end the two-year conflict engulfing Syria.

"It is important that it takes place as quickly as possible because people are dying and more and more people are driven from their homes. The risk to regional stability grow every day so this something that cannot be debated endlessly," Hague said.
