BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Wednesday that defeat to rebel forces fighting to overthrow him would spell the end of his country.

"We have no choice but victory. If we don't win, Syria will be finished and I don't think this is a choice for any citizen in Syria," Assad said in a television interview.
