Bashar Assad

Syrian president

British-educated ophthalmologist Bashar Assad assumed the leadership of Syria with the death of his father, President Hafez Assad, in June 2000. Hafez Assad ruled for 30 years, his son enters the political arena with no firm power base. 

Assad has been vocal, however, in his support for the Palestinians and Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat, pledging to coordinate peace efforts with the Palestinians.
