Tony Blair, Former British Prime Minister

On the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair gives France 24’s Stephanie Antoine his thoughts on the Syrian peace talks at the Geneva II conference. "It’s possible this [...] enables a better process but I think to find a solution right now is very hard", he says. On the subject of Assad’s future role, he believes the Syrian president will eventually have to step down.

Tony Blair also gives us his point of view on Iran's role on the world stage, democracy in the Middle East, immigration policy in the UK, and French President François Hollande's much-touted shift in economic policy.
