Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Saturday legislation to lift 48 years of emergency law would be enacted by next week but warned that new laws in the works would not be lenient towards what he called sabotage.

In a speech to a new cabinet he named last week, Assad said stability remained his priority but said that reform was needed to "strengthen the internal front", following unprecedented protests against his authoritarian rule.
