(Associated Press) A German magazine is quoting Syria’s President Bashar Assad as saying he has made mistakes and that no side in his country’s civil war is entirely free of blame.

In an advance version of an interview to be published Sunday, Der Spiegel also quotes Assad as saying he doesn’t believe in a negotiated peace with armed opposition groups.

Assad reportedly told the weekly that he hadn’t yet decided whether to run for the presidency again when his term ends in August.
