Syrian President Bashar al Assad is pondering on asylum for him, his relatives and close friends and followers in Cuba, Ecuador or Venezuela, in the event of ultimately leaving Damascus, Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz reported on Wednesday.

Last week, Syrian Minister of Foreign Affairs Faisal al Miqdad held meetings in all of the three Latin American countries and brought classified letters from Al Assad to each of the presidents.

The Venezuelan Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed daily newspaper El Universal that Al Miqdad handed over a letter for Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, received by him before heading for Cuba last Wednesday for his cancer treatment.

A Venezuelan government spokesman told Haaretz that Al Assad's notice referred to the "personal relationship between the two presidents" and that the visit of the Vice-Minister showed the close bilateral ties.

Syrian Ambassador to Venezuela Ghassan Abbas also confirmed the Israel newspaper that
Al Miqdad contacted Venezuelan officials in Caracas. However, he claimed to have no knowledge of the content of the letter signed by Al Assad.

Since the beginning of the conflict in Syria, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez has expressed his outspoken support to his Syrian counterpart. In addition, Venezuela has sent oil and fuel to Syria quite a few times, the newspaper remembered.

According to Haaretz, which does not quote any sources, the Foreign Vice-Minister held similar meetings last week in Havana and Quito.
