The United States is calling for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down.

The White House released a statement, followed by a formal announcement by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The move is coordinated with Arab and European allies and comes one day after al-Assad told the head of the United Nations that military and police operations against anti-government protesters have stopped.
