General Manaf Tlass, a key defector from Syria's Bashar al-Assad regime, said in a statement sent to AFP Tuesday that he was in Paris and called for a "constructive transition" in the country.

Tlass said he wanted Syria "to emerge from the crisis through a phase of constructive transition" and expressed his "anger and pain at seeing the army pushed to carry out a fight that is against its principles."
