Moscow did not ask Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down, nor did it offer him political asylum, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday.

"In both cases, the answer is: 'No'," Lavrov told his annual news conference. "This is untrue... No one asked about political asylum, and no one offered anything of the kind."

Lavrov also said Islamic State militants were building up influence in Afghanistan.
