BEIRUT, Jan 19 (Reuters) - Syria's foreign minister said on Saturday any discussion of President Bashar al-Assad's future was "unacceptable", days after an international envoy to the country said the president should not be part of a transitional government.

"No one should dare discuss the position of the president...this is unacceptable," Walid al-Moualem told Syrian state television in an interview. (Reporting by Erika Solomon)
