Ecuadoran President said that his country would consider granting asylum to his embattled Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad.

“Any person that requests asylum in Ecuador, obviously we are going to consider as a human being whose basic rights we have to respect” Ecuadoran President Rafael Correa told the daily Folha de Sao Paulo.

However, he confirmed that Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Fayssal Mekdad visited Quito two weeks ago but denied Israeli press reports that a possible asylum for Assad and his family was discussed during the visit.
