The US reiterates its demand for Syrian President Bashar Assad to step down.

Commenting on media reports about Damascus accepting a modified settlement roadmap proposed by the Arab league, White House spokesman Jay Carney said the US was aware of the fact but had not yet verified it.

Hailing international efforts to persuade the Syrian leader to end his crackdown on opposition protesters, Carney still added that Washington no longer considered Bashar Assad a legitimate leader of the Syrian people.
