DAMASCUS, March 24 (Reuters) - Syria will take very important decisions soon, an adviser to President Bashar al-Assad said on Thursday after a week of anti-government protests in the southern city of Deraa.

"The demands of the people of Deraa are under study and concern. They are justified," Bouthaina Shaaban said. "The coming period will witness important decisions on all levels," she told reporters.
