President al-Assad to Foreign Affairs Magazine: Israel is supporting terrorist organizations in Syria
President Bashar al-Assad gave an interview to the American magazine Foreign Affairs published on Monday.
Following is the full text of the interview:
Interview given by H.E. President Bashar al-Assad to Foreign Affairs Magazine
Question 1: I would like to start by asking you about the war. It has now been going on for almost four years, and you know the statistics: more than two hundred thousand people have been killed, a million wounded, and more than three million Syrians have fled the country, according to the UN. Your forces have also suffered heavy casualties. The war cannot go on forever. How do you see the war ending?
President Assad: All Wars, anywhere in the world have in the past ended with a political solution because war itself is not the solution; war is one of the instruments of politics. So you end with a political solution. That’s how we see it. That is the headline.
Question 2: You don’t think that this war will end militarily?
President Assad: No. Any war ends with a political solution.
Question 3: Your country is increasingly divided into three mini-states, you could say: one is controlled by the government, one is controlled by ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra, one is controlled by the more secular Sunni and Kurdish opposition. How will you ever put Syria back together again?
President Assad: First of all, this image is not accurate because you cannot talk about mini-states with out talking about the people who live within those states. The Syrian people are still with the unity of Syria; they still support the government. The factions you refer to control some areas, but they move from one place to another; they are not stable, and there are no clear lines of separation between different forces. Sometimes they mingle with each other and they move. But the main issue is about the population. The population still supports the state regardless of whether they support it politically or not; I mean they support the state as the representative of the unity of Syria. This is what I mean by supporting the state. So as long as you have the Syrian people believing in unity, any government and any official can unify Syria. If the people are divided into two, three, or four groups, no one can unify this country. That’s how we see it.
Question 4: You think that the Sunnis and the Kurds still believe in a unified Syria?
President Assad: If you go to Damascus now you can see all the different, let’s say, colors of our society living together. So the divisions in Syria are not based on sectarian or ethnic grounds, and even in the Kurdish area you are talking about, we have two different colors; we have Arabs more than Kurds, so it’s not about the ethnicity; it’s about the factions that control certain areas militarily.
Question 5: A year ago, both the opposition and foreign governments were insisting that you step down as a precondition to talks. They no longer are. Diplomats are now looking for an interim settlement that would allow you to keep a role. Just today, the New York Times had an article that talked about increased U.S. support for the Russian and UN peace initiatives. The article refers to: “the West’s quiet retreat from its demands that Syria’s president step down immediately.” Given this shift in the Western attitude, are you now more open to a negotiated solution to the conflict that leads to a political transition?
President Assad: From the very beginning we were open. We engaged in dialogue with every party in Syria. Party doesn’t mean political party; it could be party, current, or some personality, it could be any political entity. We changed the constitution and we are open to anything. But when you want to do something, it’s not about the position or about the government, it’s about the Syrians; sometimes you might have a majority that doesn’t belong to any side. So when you want to make a change, as long as you’re talking about a national problem, every Syrian must have a say in it. When you have a dialogue, it’s not between the government and the opposition; it’s between the different Syrian parties and entities. That’s how we look at dialogue. This is first. Second, whatever solution you want to make, at the end you should go back to the people through a referendum, because you’re talking about the constitution; changing the political system, You have to go back to the Syrian people. So engaging in a dialogue is different from taking decisions, which is not done by the government or the opposition.
Question 6: So you’re saying that you would not agree to any kind of political transition unless there is a referendum that supports it?
President Assad: Exactly, the people should make the decision, not anyone else.
Question 7: Does that mean there’s no room for negotiations?
President Assad: No, we will go to Russia, we will go to these negotiations, but there is another question here: who do you negotiate with? As a government, we have institutions, we have an army, and we have influence, positive or negative, in any direction, at any time. Whereas the people we are going to negotiate with, who do they represent? That’s the question. When you talk about the opposition, it has to have meaning. The opposition in general has to have representatives in the local administration, in the parliament, in institutions, they have to have grassroots to represent. In the current crisis, you have to ask about the opposition’s influence on the ground. You have to go back to what the rebels announced publically, when they said many times that the opposition doesn’t represent us, they have no influence. If you want to talk about fruitful dialogue, it’s going to be between the government and those rebels. There is another point. Opposition means national, it means working for the interests of the Syrian people. It cannot be an opposition if it’s a puppet of Qatar or Saudi Arabia or any Western country, including the United States, paid from the outside. It should be Syrian. We have a national opposition, I’m not excluding it, I’m not saying every opposition is not legitimate. But you have to separate the national and the puppets. Not every dialogue is fruitful.
Question 8: Does that mean you would not want to meet with opposition forces that are backed by outside countries?
President Assad: We are going to meet with everyone. We don’t have conditions.
Journalist: No conditions?
President Assad: No conditions.
Journalist: You would meet with everyone?
President Assad: Yes, we’re going to meet with everyone. But you have to ask each one of them: who do you represent? That’s what I mean.
Question 9: If I’m correct, the deputy of UN representative Staffan de Mistura is in Syria now. They’re proposing as an interim measure a ceasefire and a freeze in Aleppo. Would you agree to that?
President Assad: Yes, of course. We implemented that before de Mistura was assigned to his mission. We implemented it in another city called Homs, another big city. We implemented it on smaller scales in different, let’s say, suburbs, villages, and so on, and it succeeded. So, the idea is very good, but it depends on the details. De Mistura came to Syria with headlines. We agreed upon certain headlines, and now we are waiting for him to bring a detailed plan or schedule – A to Z plan – let’s say. We are discussing this with his deputy.
Question 10: In the past, you insisted as a precondition for a ceasefire that the rebels lay down their weapons first, which obviously from their perspective was a non-starter. Is that still your precondition?
President Assad: We choose different scenarios or different reconciliations. In some areas, we allowed them to leave inhabited areas in order to prevent casualties among civilians. They left these areas with their armaments. In other areas, they give up their armaments and they left. It depends on what they offer and what you offer.
Question 11: I’m not clear on your answer. Would you insist that they lay down their weapons?
President Assad: No, no. That’s not what I mean. In some areas, they left the area with their armaments.
Question 12: Are you optimistic about the Moscow talks?
President Assad: What is going on in Moscow is not negotiations about the solution; it’s only preparations for the conference.
Journalist: So, talks about talks?
President Assad: Exactly, how to prepare for the talks. So, when you start talking about the conference, what are the principles of the conference? I’ll go back to the same point. Let me be frank: some of the groups are puppets, as I said, of other countries. They have to implement that agenda, and I know that many countries, like France for example, do not have any interest in making that conference succeed. So they will give them orders to make them fail. You have other personalities who only represent themselves, they don’t represent anyone in Syria. Some of them never lived in Syria and they know nothing about the country. Of course, you have some other personalities who work for the national interest. So when you talk about the opposition as one entity, who’s going to have influence on the other? That is the question. It’s not clear yet. So, optimism would be an exaggeration. I wouldn’t say I’m pessimistic, I would say we have hope, in every action.
Question 13: It seems that in recent days the Americans have become more supportive of the Moscow talks. Initially, they were not. Yesterday, Secretary of State Kerry said something to suggest that the U.S. hopes that the talks go forward and that they are successful.
President Assad: They always say things, but it’s about what they’re going to do. And you know there’s mistrust between the Syrians and the U.S. So just wait till we see what will happen at the conference.
Question 14: So, what do you see as the best way to strike a deal between all of the different parties in Syria?
President Assad: It’s to deal directly with the rebels, but you have two different kinds of rebels. Now, the majority are al Qaeda, which is ISIS and al-Nusra, with other similar factions that belong to al Qaeda but are smaller. Now, what’s left, what Obama called a “fantasy” the moderate opposition. It’s not an opposition, they are rebels. Most of them joined al Qaeda, and some of them rejoined the army recently. During the last week, a lot of them left those groups and came to the army.
Question 15: Are these former defectors who came back?
President Assad: Yes, they came back to the army. They said, we don’t want to fight anymore. So what’s left of those is very little. At the end, can you negotiate with al Qaeda, and others? They are not ready to negotiate, they have their own plan. The reconciliation that we started and Mr. de Mistura is going to continue is the practical solution on the ground. This is the first point. Second, you have to implement the Security Council resolution No. 2170 on al-Nusra and ISIS which was issued a few months ago, and this resolution is very clear about preventing anyone from supporting these factions militarily, financially, or logistically, yet this is what Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar are still doing. If it’s not implemented, we cannot talk about a real solution because there will be obstacles. So this is how we can start. Third, the Western countries should remove the umbrella, still refered to by some of supporting the moderate opposition. They know we have mainly al Qaeda, ISIS and al Nusra.
Question 16: Would you be prepared to take any confidence-building measures in advance of the talks? For example, prisoner exchanges, or ending the use of barrel bombs, or releasing political prisoners, in order to build confidence on the other side that you’re willing to negotiate in good faith?
President Assad: It’s not a personal relationship; it’s about mechanisms. In politics, you only talk about mechanisms. You don’t have to trust someone to do something. If you have a clear mechanism, you can reach a result. That is what the people want. So the question is, what is the mechanism that we can put in place? This takes us back to the same question: who are they, what do they represent, what’s their influence, what is the point of building trust with people with no influence?
Journalist: When two parties come together, it’s often very useful for one party to show the other that it’s really interested in making progress by taking steps unilaterally to try and bring down the temperature. The measures that I described would have that effect.
President Assad: You have something concrete, and that is reconciliation. People gave up their armaments, we gave them amnesty, they live normal lives. It is a real example. So this is a measure of confidence. On the other hand, what is the relation between that opposition and the prisoners? There’s no relation. They are not their prisoners anyway. So it is completely a different issue.
Question 17: So, have you offered amnesty to fighters?
President Assad: Yes, of course, and we did it many times.
Question 18: How many, do you have numbers?
President Assad: I don’t have the precise numbers, but it’s thousands, not hundreds, thousands of militants.
Question 19: And are you prepared to say to the entire opposition that if you lay down your weapons, you will be safe?
President Assad: Yes, I said it publically in one of my speeches.
Question 20: And how can you guarantee their safety? Because they have reasons to distrust your government.
President Assad: You cannot, but at the end, let’s say that if more than 50 percent succeed, more than 50 percent in such circumstances would be a success. So, that’s how. Nothing is absolute. You have to expect some negative aspects, but they are not the major aspects.
Question 21: Let me change the subject slightly. Hezbollah, Iran’s Quds force and Iranian-trained Shiite militias are all now playing significant roles in the fight against rebels here in Syria. Given this involvement, are you worried about Iran’s influence over the country? After all, Iraq or even Lebanon shows that once a foreign military power becomes established in a country, it can be very difficult to ask them to leave again.
President Assad: Iran is an important country in this region, and it was influential before the crisis. It’s influence is not related to the crisis, it’s related to its role, its political position in general. When you talk about influence, various factors make a particular country influential. In the Middle East, in our region, you have the same society, the same ideology, many similar things, the same tribes, going across borders. So those factors are crossing the borders. If you have influence on one factor, your influence will be crossing the border. This is part of our nature. It’s not related to the conflict. Of course, when there is conflict and anarchy, another country will be more influential in your country. When you don’t have the will to have a sovereign country, you will have that influence. Now, the answer to your question is, Iran doesn’t have any ambitions in Syria, and as a country, as Syria, we would never allow any country to have influence our sovereignty. We don’t accept and the Iranians don’t want it either. We allow cooperation. But if you allowed any country to have influence, why not allow the Americans to have influence in Syria? That’s the problem with the Americans and with the West: they want to have influence without cooperation.
Question 22: Let me just push you a little bit further. Last week, a commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, of their airspace command, Haji Zadeh, said in an interview that Iran’s Supreme Leader has ordered his forces to build and operate missile plants in Syria. That suggests that Iran is playing a greater role and doing it on its own.
President Assad: No, playing a role through cooperation is different from playing a role through hegemony.
Question 23: So everything that Iran is doing…?
President Assad: Of course, in full cooperation with the Syrian government, and that’s always the case.
Question 24: Now Iran is one thing to deal with because it’s a country. But you also have militias which are sub-state actors, and therefore more complicated. One problem with working with these groups is that, unlike a government, they may not be willing to cooperate and it’s not always clear who to talk to. Are you worried about your ability to control these forces and to rein them in if you need to? And, a related question, this week Israel attacked Hezbollah forces in the Golan, and the Israelis suggest that they attacked them because Hezbollah was planning an attack on Israel from Syrian territory. Doesn’t this also highlight the danger of allowing militias with their own agendas, not necessarily your agenda, to come into the war?
President Assad: Do you mean Syrian, or any other militias in general?
Journalist: I mean especially Hezbollah and the Iraqi Shi’a militias.
President Assad: It’s natural to say that only the institutions of the government, of the state, let’s say, are the guarantee for stability and order. Any other factor that would play a role in parallel with the government could be positive, could be good in certain circumstances, but it will always have side effects, negative side effects. That is a natural thing. And having militias who support the government is a side effect of the war. You have it, but you’re going to try to control this side effect. So, to have the way, if you ask any Syrian about that, he will give you a similar answer. Nobody will feel more comfortable than if they are dealing with government institutions, including the army and the police and so on. But talking about what happened in Quneitra is something completely different. Never has an operation against Israel happened through the Golan Heights since the ceasefire in 1974. It has never happened. So, for Israel to allege that there was a plan for an operation, that’s a far cry from reality, just an excuse, because they wanted to assassinate somebody from Hezbollah.
Question 25: But the Israelis have been very careful since the war began to not get involved except when they felt when their interests were directly threatened.
President Assad: That’s not true, because they’ve been attacking Syria now for nearly two years, without any reason.
Journalist: But in each case, they say it’s because Hezbollah was being given weapons from Iran through Syria.
President Assad: They attacked army positions. What is the relation between Hezbollah and the army?
Journalist: Those were cases where the army accidentally shelled-
President Assad: Those are false allegations.
Question 26: So what do you think Israel’s agenda is?
President Assad: They are supporting the rebels in Syria. It’s very clear. Because whenever we make advances in some place, they attack in order to undermine the army. It’s very clear. That’s why some in Syria joke, how can you say that al Qaeda doesn’t have an air force? They have the Israeli air force.
Question 27: To return to my question about militias, do you feel confident that you’ll be able to control them when this war end, because after all, any government, to have effective sovereignty, has to have what’s called a monopoly of force, and that’s very hard when you have these independent armed groups running around.
President Assad: That’s self-evident, the state cannot fulfill its commitment to society if it’s not the only master of order.
Journalist: But you see in Iraq how hard that is, because it is now very difficult for the government to control all these Shia militia which were empowered during the war.
President Assad: There’s a very important reason in Iraq: it’s because Paul Bremmer didn’t create a constitution for the state; he created one for factions. Whereas in Syria why did the army stand fast for four years in spite of this embargo, this war, tens of countries around the world attacking Syria and supporting the rebels? Because it has a real constitution, a real, secular constitution. That is the reason. In Iraq, it is sectarian. When you talk about a sectarian constitution, it’s not a constitution.
Question 28: But what will you do about these militias when the war ends?
President Assad: Things should go back to normal like before the war.
Question 29: And you’re confident-?
President Assad: Yes, we don’t have any other option. That is the role of the government. This is self-evident.
Question 30: What impact are falling oil prices having on the war in Syria? After all, your two closest allies and supporters, Iran and Russia, are very dependent on oil prices and they have suffered tremendous damage to their budgets in recent months as the price of oil has fallen. Do you worry about their ability to continue helping you?
President Assad: No, because they don’t give us money, so it has no effect on Syria. Even if they are going to help us, it would be in the forms of loans We’re like any other country, Sometimes we pay, sometimes we take loans.
Journalist: But their military support costs them money, and if they have less money to pay for their own militaries, won’t that become a problem?
President Assad: No, because when you pay for armaments or any other goods, you don’t have a problem.
Question 31: So you’re saying everything you’re getting from the Russians and Iranians…?
President Assad: So far we haven’t seen any changes, so what the influence is on them, I cannot answer.
Question 32: You’ve said in past interviews that you and your government have made mistakes in the course of the war. What are those mistakes? Is there anything that you regret?
President Assad: Every government, every person, makes mistakes, so that’s again self-evident, it’s a given. But if you want to talk about political mistakes, you have to ask yourself, what are the major decisions that you took since the crisis started? We took three main decisions: first of all, to be open to all dialogue. Second, we changed the constitution and the law according to what many in the opposition were saying, allegedly, that this is the reason of the crisis. Third, we took the decision to defend our country, to defend our self, to fight terrorists. So I don’t think those three decisions can be described as wrong or mistakes. If you want to talk about practice, any official in any place can make mistakes, but there’s a difference between practice mistakes and policy mistakes.
Question 33: Can you describe some of the practical mistakes?
President Assad: I would have to go back to officials on the ground, there’s nothing in my mind. I would rather talk about policies.
Question 34: Do you feel there have been any policy mistakes that you’re responsible for?
President Assad: I mentioned the major decisions.
Journalist: But you said those are not mistakes.
President Assad: To defend the country from terrorism? If I wanted to say that it’s a mistake, then to be correct would be to support the terrorists.
Journalist: I’m just wondering if there’s anything you did that you wish in retrospect you had done differently.
President Assad: Regarding these three main decisions, they were correct, and I am confident about this.
Question 35: In terms of lower-level practical mistakes, are people being held accountable, say, for human rights abuses, for the excessive use of force, or the indiscriminate targeting of civilians, those kinds of things?
President Assad: Yes. Some people were detained because they breached the law in that regard, and that happens of course in such circumstances.
Journalist: In terms of their treatment of civilians or protestors, is that what you’re referring to?
President Assad: Yes, during the protests at the very beginning, yes.
Question 36: Since the U.S. began its air campaign against the Islamic State, Syria and the U.S. have become strange kinds of partners and are effectively cooperating in that aspect of the fight. Do you see the potential for increased cooperation with the U.S.?
President Assad: The potential is definitely always there, because we’ve been talking about or asking for international cooperation against terrorism for 30 years, but this potential needs will. The question that we have is, how much will does the United States have to really fight terrorism on the ground? So far, we haven’t seen anything concrete in spite of the attacks on ISIS in northern Syria. There’s nothing concrete. What we’ve seen so far is just, let’s say, window dressing, nothing real. Since the beginning of these attacks, ISIS has gained more land in Syria and Iraq.
Question 37: What about the airstrikes on Kobani? Those have been effective in slowing ISIS.
President Assad: Kobani is a small city, with about 50,000 inhabitants. It’s been more than three months since the beginning of the attacks, and they haven’t finished. The Same areas, With the al Qaeda factions occupying them, the Syrian Army liberated in less than three weeks. It means they’re not serious about fighting terrorism.
Question 38: So are you saying you want a greater U.S. involvement in the war against ISIS?
President Assad: It’s not about greater involvement by the military, because it’s not only about the military, it’s about politics, it’s about how much the United States wants to influence the Turks, because if the terrorists can withstand the airstrikes for this period, it means that the Turks keep sending them armaments and money. Did the United States put any pressure on Turkey to stop the support of al Qaeda? They didn’t, they haven’t. So, it’s not only about military involvement. This is first. Second, if you want to talk about the military involvement, American officials publically acknowledge that without troops on the ground, they cannot achieve anything concrete. Which troops on the grounds are you depending on?
Question 39: So are you suggesting there should be U.S. troops on the ground?
President Assad: Not U.S. troops. I’m talking about the principle, the military principle, I’m not saying American troops. If you want to say I want to make war on terrorism, you have to have troops on the ground. The question you have to ask the Americans is: which troops are you going to depend on? Definitely, it has to be Syrian troops. This is our land, this is our country. We are responsible. We don’t ask for American troops at all.
Question 40: So, what would you like to see from the United States? You mentioned more pressure on Turkey …
President Assad: Pressure on Turkey, pressure on Saudi Arabia, pressure on Qatar to stop supporting the rebels. Second, to make legal cooperation with Syria and start by asking permission from our government to carry out such attacks. They didn’t, so it’s illegal.
Question 41: I’m sorry, I’m not clear on that point. You want them to make legal…?
President Assad: Of course, if you want to make any kind of action in another country, you ask their permission.
Question 42: I see. So, a formal agreement between Washington and Damascus to allow for airstrikes?
President Assad: The format we can discuss later, but you start with permission. Is it an agreement, is it a treaty? That’s another issue.
Question 43: And would you be willing to take steps to make cooperation easier with Washington?
President Assad: With any country that is serious about fighting terrorism, we are ready to make cooperation, if they’re serious.
Question 44: What steps would you be prepared to make to show Washington that you’re willing to cooperate?
President Assad: I think they are the ones who have to show the will. We are already fighting on the ground, we don’t have to show that.
Question 45: The U.S. is currently training 5,000 Syrian fighters who are scheduled to enter Syria in May. Now, U.S. General John Allen has been very careful to say that these troops will not be directed at the Syrian government, but will be focused on ISIS alone. What will you do when these troops enter the country? Will you allow them to enter? Will you attack them?
President Assad: Any troops that don’t work in cooperation with the Syrian Army are illegal and should be fought. That’s very clear.
Question 46: Even if this brings you into conflict with the U.S.?
President Assad: Without cooperation with Syrian troops, they are illegal, and are puppets of another country, so they are going to be fought like any other illegal militia fighting against the Syrian Army. But that brings another question, about those troops. Obama said that they are a fantasy. How did fantasy become reality?
Journalist: I think with kind of training program.
President Assad: But you can’t make extremism moderate.
Journalist: There are still some moderate members of the opposition. They are weaker and weaker all the time, but I think the U.S. government is trying very carefully to ensure that the fighters it trains are not radicals.
President Assad: But the question is why is the moderate opposition – if you call them opposition, we call them rebels – why are they weaker and weaker? They are still weaker because of developments in the Syrian crisis. Bringing 5,000 from the outside will make most of them defect and join ISIS and other groups which is what happened during the last year. So that’s why I said it’s still illusory. It is not the 5,000 that are illusory, but the idea itself.
Question 47: Part of what makes Washington so reluctant to cooperate with you more formally are the allegations of serious human rights abuses by your government. These allegations aren’t just from the U.S. government, they are also from the UN Human Rights Commission, the Independent Special Investigative Commission of the UN. You are familiar with these allegations, I’m sure. They include denying access for relief groups to refugee camps, indiscriminate bombing of civilian targets, photo evidence provided by the defector code-named Cesar who made a presentation to the U.S. Congress showing terrible torture and abuse in Syrian prisons. Are you prepared to take action on these issues in order to make cooperation with the U.S. easier?
President Assad: The funny thing about this administration is that it’s the first one in history to build its evaluation and later decisions on social media. We call it a social media administration, which is not politics. None of these allegations you mentioned are concrete, all of them are allegations. You can bring photos from anyone and say this is torture. Who took the pictures? Who is he? Nobody knows. There is no verification of any of this evidence, so it’s all allegations without evidence.
Journalist: But Cesar’s photos have been looked at by independent European investigators.
President Assad: No, no. It’s funded by Qatar, and they say it’s an anonymous source. So nothing is clear or proven. The pictures are not clear which person they show. They’re just pictures of a head, for example, with some skulls. Who said this is done by the government, not by the rebels? Who said this is a Syrian victim, not someone else? For example, photos published at the beginning of the crisis were from Iraq and Yemen. Second, the United States in particular and the West in general are in no position to talk about human rights. They are responsible for most of the killings in the region, especially the United States after getting into Iraq, and the UK after invading Libya, and the situation in Yemen, and what happened in Egypt in supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and terrorism in Tunisia. All these problems happened because of the United States. They were the first ones to trample international law and Security Council resolutions, not us.
Journalist: That may or may not be true, but those are separate issues, and that does not absolve your government of responsibility.
President Assad: No, no. The United States accused, so we have to answer that part. I’m not saying if there’s any human rights breach or infringement, the government has no responsibility. That is another issue. The second part of your question is about the allegations, they’re still allegations. If you want me to answer, I have to answer about something that is concrete, proved, and verified.
Question 48: Are you prepared to categorically deny that there’s torture and abuse of prisoners in Syria?
President Assad: If there’s any unbiased and fair way to verify all those allegations, of course we are ready. That would be in our interest.
Question 49: What impact would a U.S.-Iran nuclear deal have on Syria?
President Assad: Nothing, because the crisis here was never part of the negotiations, and Iran refused to make it such, and that is correct because there is no link between the two.
Journalist: But many in the U.S. anticipate that if Iran and the U.S. strike a deal, it will make cooperation between the two countries much easier. People therefore wonder if Iran might decide to reduce its support for Syria as a favor to the U.S. government.
President Assad: We have never had any positive information about such a thing, never. I cannot discuss something which I don’t have any information about.
Question 50: Describe whether you think the war is going well from the government’s perspective. Independent analysts have suggested that your government currently controls 45 to 50 percent of the territory of Syria.
President Assad: First of all, if you want to describe the arena, it’s not a war between two countries, between two armies where you have an incursion and you lost some territory that you want to regain. It’s not like this. We’re talking about rebels that infiltrate areas inhabited by civilians. You have Syrian terrorists that support foreign terrorists to come and hide among civilians, they launch what you call guerrilla attacks. That is the shape of this war, so you cannot look at it as being about territory. Second, wherever the Syrian Army has wanted to go, it has succeeded, but the Syrian army cannot have a presence on every kilometer of Syrian territory. That’s impossible. We made some advances in the past two years. But if you want to ask me “is it going well,” I say that every war is bad, because you always lose, you always have destruction in a war. The main question is what have we won in this war? What we won in this war is that the Syrian people have rejected the terrorists, the Syrian people support their government more, the Syrian people support their army more. Before talking about winning territory, talk about winning the hearts and minds and the support of the Syrian people. That’s what we have won. What’s left is logistical, it’s technical. That is a matter of time. The war is moving in a positive way, but that doesn’t mean you’re not losing on the national level, because you lose lives, you lose infrastructure, the war itself has very bad social effects.
Question 51: Do you think you will eventually defeat the rebels militarily?
President Assad: If they don’t have external support, and supply and recruitment of new terrorists within Syria, there will be no problem defeating them. Even today we don’t have a problem militarily. The problem is that they still have this continuous supply, mainly from Turkey.
Question 52: So, Turkey seems to be the neighbor that you’re most concerned about?
President Assad: Exactly, logistically, and about terrorist financing from Saudi Arabia and Qatar but through Turkey.
Question 53: Do you blame Erdogan personally? This is a man you once had a fairly good relationship with.
President Assad: Exactly, because he belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood ideology, which is the base of al Qaeda because it was the first political Islamic organization that promoted violent political Islam in the early 20th century. He belongs strongly and is a staunch believer in these values, he’s very fanatical, and that’s why he still supports ISIS. He is personally responsible for what happened.
Question 54: Do you see any other potential partners in the region? For example, General al-Sisi in Egypt?
President Assad: I wouldn’t talk about him personally, but as long as Egypt and the Egyptian army and the government are fighting the same kind of terrorists as in Iraq, of course, we can consider these countries eligible to cooperate with in fighting the same enemy.
Question 55: Two final questions, if I may. Can you imagine a scenario in which Syria returns to the status quo as it was before the fighting started almost four years ago?
President Assad: In what sense?
Journalist: In the sense that Syria is whole again, it is not divided, it controls its borders, it starts to rebuild, and it is at peace and a predominantly secular country.
President Assad: If you look at a military map now, the Syrian Army exists in every corner. Not every place; by every corner I mean north, south, east, west, and between. If you didn’t believe in a unified Syria, that Syria can go back to its previous position, you wouldn’t send the army there, as a government. If you don’t believe in this as a people, you would have seen people in Syria isolated in different ghettos, people isolated in different ghettos based on ethnic and sectarian or religious identity. As long as this is not the situation, the people live with each other, the army is everywhere, the army is made up of every color of Syrian society, or the Syrian fabric. This means that we all believe Syria should go back to the way it was. We don’t have any other option, because if it doesn’t go back to its previous position, that will affect every surrounding country. It’s one fabric, it’s a domino effect that will have influence from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
Question 56: If you were able to deliver a message to President Obama today, what would it be?
President Assad: I think the normal thing that you ask any official in the world is to work for the interests of his people. And the question I would ask any American is: what do you get from supporting terrorists in our country, in our region? What did you get from supporting the Muslim Brotherhood a few years ago in Egypt and other countries? What did you get from supporting someone like Erdogan? One of the officials from your country asked me seven years ago in Syria at the end of a meeting: how do you think we can solve the problem in Afghanistan? I told him, you have to be able to deal with officials who are not puppets, who can tell you “no.” So, for the United States only looking for puppet officials and client states is not how you can serve the interests of your country. You are the greatest power in the world now, you have many things to disseminate around the world: knowledge, innovation, IT with its positive repercussions. How can you be the best in these fields yet the worst in the political field? This is a contradiction. That is what I think the American people should analyze and question. Why do you fail in every war? You can create war, you can create problems, but you cannot solve any problem. Twenty years of the peace process in Palestine and Israel and you cannot do anything with this in spite of the fact that you are a great country.
Question 57: But in the context of Syria, what would a better policy look like?
President Assad: One that preserves stability in the Middle East. Syria is the heart of the Middle East. Everybody knows that. If the Middle East is sick, the whole world will be unstable. In 1991, when we started the peace process, we had a lot of hope. Now, after over 20 years, things are not at square one; they’re much below that square. So the policy should be to help peace in the region, to fight terrorism, to promote secularism, to support this area economically, to help upgrade the mind and society like you did in your country. That is the supposed mission of the United States, not to launch wars. Launching war doesn’t make you a great power.
الرئيس الأسد لمجلة فورن افيرز الأمريكية: الشعب السوري رفض الإرهابيين وأظهر دعما متزايدا لحكومته وجيشه.. إسرائيل تقدم الدعم للتنظيمات الإرهابية في سورية(النص الكامل)
أهم الأخبار,المقابلات,رئاسة الجمهورية العربية السورية,
أكد السيد الرئيس بشار الأسد أنه في كل حالة أراد الجيش السوري الدخول إلى منطقة معينة نجح في ذلك لكن لا يمكن للجيش العربي السوري أن يوجد في كل كيلو متر من الأراضي السورية .. هذا مستحيل.
وقال الرئيس الأسد في مقابلة مع مجلة فورن افيرز الأميركية: حققنا بعض التقدم خلال السنتين الماضيتين مشيرا إلى أن ما كسبناه أن الشعب السوري رفض الإرهابيين وأظهر دعما متزايدا لحكومته وجيشه.
وأكد الرئيس الأسد: منذ البداية كنا منفتحين على أي حوار مع أي طرف في سورية لافتا إلى أن ما سيجري في موسكو ليس مفاوضات للتوصل إلى حل .. بل إنه تحضير للمؤتمر.
وفيما يلي النص الكامل للمقابلة:
السؤال الأول..
سأبدأ بسؤالكم عن الحرب التي مضى على بدايتها ما يقرب من أربع سنوات .. وأنتم تعلمون إحصائياتها.. قتل أكثر من مئتي ألف شخص وجرح مليون شخص وهرب أكثر من ثلاثة ملايين سوري إلى خارج البلاد طبقاً للأمم المتحدة.. كما تعرضت قواتكم أيضا لخسائر كبيرة.. لا يمكن لهذه الحرب أن تستمر إلى ما لا نهاية.. كيف ترون نهاية هذه الحرب…
الرئيس الأسد..
أي حرب في أي مكان من العالم وكل حرب حدثت في الماضي تنتهي بحل سياسي لأن الحرب نفسها ليست الحل.. لنقل إن الحرب هي إحدى أدوات السياسة وهكذا فالنهاية هي التوصل إلى حل سياسي.. هكذا نراها.. هذا هو العنوان العريض.
السؤال الثاني..
لا تعتقدون أن هذه الحرب ستنتهي عسكريا…
الرئيس الأسد..
لا.. أي حرب تنتهي بحل سياسي.
الشعب السوري لا يزال مع وحدة سورية ولا يزال يدعم الحكومة
السؤال الثالث..
يمكن للمرء أن يقول تقريبا.. إن بلادكم باتت منقسمة على نحو متزايد إلى ثلاث دويلات.. واحدة تسيطر عليها الحكومة.. وواحدة يسيطر عليها /داعش/ و/جبهة النصرة/.. والثالثة تسيطر عليها المعارضة السنية والكردية الأكثر اعتدالا.. كيف ستعيدون توحيد سورية…
الرئيس الأسد..
أولاً هذه الصورة ليست دقيقة.. حيث لا تستطيع التحدث عن دويلات ما لم تتحدث عن الناس الذين يعيشون في تلك المناطق.. الشعب السوري لا يزال مع وحدة سورية ولا يزال يدعم الحكومة.. أما الفصائل التي تحدثت عنها فهي تسيطر على بعض المناطق لكنها تنتقل من مكان إلى آخر.. ليست مستقرة.. وليست هناك خطوط واضحة تفصل بين القوى المختلفة.. في بعض الأحيان تكون متشابكة مع بعضها بعضاً.. لكن القضية الأساسية تتعلق بالسكان الذين لا يزالون يدعمون الدولة بصرف النظر عما إذا كانوا يدعمونها سياسياً أو لا.. إنهم يدعمون الدولة كممثل لوحدة سورية.. هذا ما أعنيه بدعم الدولة.. وطالما ظل الشعب السوري يؤمن بوحدة سورية فإن أي حكومة وأي مسؤول يمكن أن يوحد سورية.. والعكس بالعكس. إذا كان الشعب منقسماً إلى فئتين أو ثلاث فئات أو أكثر.. فلا أحد يستطيع أن يوحد هذا البلد.. هكذا ننظر إلى الأمر.
السؤال الرابع..
هل تعتقد أن السنة والأكراد ما زالوا يؤمنون بسورية موحدة…
الرئيس الأسد..
إذا سرت في دمشق الآن تستطيع أن ترى جميع ألوان المجتمع السوري سواء كان من الناحية العرقية أو الدينية أو الطائفية.. جميعهم يعيشون معاً.. الانقسامات في سورية لا تستند إلى أساس طائفي أو عرقي.. حتى المناطق الكردية تتواجد فيها الألوان المختلفة التي تحدثت عنها.. وفيها من العرب أكثر مما فيها من الأكراد.. إذاً الأمر لا يتعلق بالعرق أو الدين بل بالفصائل التي تسيطر عسكرياً على مناطق معينة.
منذ البداية كنا منفتحين على أي حوار مع أي طرف في سورية
السؤال الخامس..
قبل عام من الان.. كانت المعارضة والحكومات الأجنبية تصر على أن تتنحى.. وتضع ذلك كشرط مسبق للمفاوضات.. أما الان فلم تعد تفعل ذلك.. بات الدبلوماسيون الان يبحثون عن تسوية انتقالية تسمح لك بالاحتفاظ بدور.. اليوم نشرت صحيفة /نيويورك تايمز/ مقالة تتحدث عن زيادة الدعم الأميركي للمبادرة الروسية ومبادرة الأمم المتحدة وأقتبس من المقالة قولها.. //إن ثمة تراجعا غربيا هادئا عن مطالبة الرئيس السوري بالتنحي الفوري//..
بالنظر إلى هذا التحول في الموقف الغربي.. هل بتم أكثر استعدادا للتوصل إلى حل تفاوضي للصراع يفضي إلى عملية سياسية انتقالية…
1الرئيس الأسد..
منذ البداية كنا منفتحين على أي حوار مع أي طرف في سورية.. وأنا لا أقصد الأحزاب السياسية فقط.. بل أي تيار أو شخصيات أو لنقل أي كيان سياسي.. وغيرنا الدستور.. ونحن منفتحون على كل شيء.. لكن عندما ترغب بالقيام بأمر ما فإن ذلك لا يتعلق بالمنصب ولا بالحكومة بل بالسوريين أنفسهم.. قد يكون هناك أغلبية في الوسط لا تنتمي إلى أي طرف.. فإذا أردت أن تقوم بأي تغيير أو التوصل إلى أي حل سياسي ينبغي لكل سوري أن يعبر عن رأيه في ذلك. طالما أنك تتحدث عن مشكلة وطنية.. بالتالي عندما تجري حواراً فإنه لا يكون فقط بين الحكومة والمعارضة.. بل بين جميع الأحزاب والكيانات السورية.. هكذا ننظر إلى عملية الحوار.. هذا أولاً. ثانياً.. مهما كان الحل الذي ترغب بالتوصل إليه في النهاية فعليك أن تعود إلى الشعب من خلال استفتاء لأن ذلك سيتعلق بالدستور وبتغيير النظام السياسي وأي شيء آخر وبالتالي الشعب السوري هو من يقرر ذلك.
السؤال السادس..
إذاً.. أنت تقول إنك لن توافق على أي عملية انتقال سياسي ما لم يتم إجراء استفتاء يدعم هذه العملية…
الرئيس الأسد..
تماماً.. الشعب هو الذي ينبغي أن يتخذ القرار وليس أي طرف اخر.
عندما يجري نقاش ينبغي الفصل بين المعارضة الوطنية وبين شخصيات لا تعدو كونها دمى
السؤال السابع..
هل يعني ذلك عدم إمكانية إجراء مفاوضات…
الرئيس الأسد..
لا أبداً.. نحن ذاهبون إلى روسيا وسنتفاوض. لكن هناك سؤال آخر هنا.. مع من تتفاوض… نحن كحكومة لدينا مؤسسات.. ولدينا جيش.. ولدينا نفوذ.. سواء كان إيجابياً أو سلبياً أو في أي اتجاه.. وفي الوقت الذي نريد. أما الأشخاص الذين ستتفاوض معهم فمن يمثلون… هذا هو السؤال. عندما تتحدث عن معارضة فإن لذلك معنى.. للمعارضة عادة وفي كل الدول ممثلون في الإدارة المحلية.. في البرلمان وفي المؤسسات.. ينبغي أن يكون لديها قواعد شعبية تتحدث هذه المعارضة نيابة عنها. مشكلتنا في الأزمة الراهنة أن علينا أن نسأل عن نفوذ هذه الأطراف على الأرض. عليك أن تعود إلى ما أعلنته الجماعات المسلحة عندما قالت مراراً إ

Mr.President's interview on CCTV

#CCTV Exclusive: #Assad on Syria chemical arms draft
“If the U.S. wants to find excuses for #war, it will find them as it has never stopped war”
“We also have confessions made by the terrorists who transported the materials from the neighboring countries”
“We know that these terrorists are obeying the orders of other countries and these countries do drive these terrorists to commit acts that could get the Syrian government blamed for hindering this agreement”

“We are a nation at war, we’ve got territories that have been occupied for more than 40 years, but in any case, the Syrian army is trained to fight using conventional weapons.”
“So there is nothing to worry about. The chemical weapons in Syria are in a safe place that is secure and under the control of the Syrian army.”

“I am not concerned. Since its independence, #Syria has been committed to all the treaties it has signed. We will honor everything that we have agreed to do. Secondly, China and Russia are playing a positive role in the UN Security Council to ensure any excuse for military action against Syria will not stand. And more importantly, I want to say, by submitting the draft to the #UN Security Council , or by urging the US and Russia to agree on a deal, the #US, #France, and #Britain are JUST trying to make themselves winners in a war against a Syria which is their imaginary enemy. Thus Syria should not be concerned by any such draft or deal.”
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad criticised the United States for threatening to attack Syria over its chemical weapons program, saying it was finding “excuses for war”, China’s state television said on Monday.

الرئيس الأسد لتلفزيون سي سي تي في الصيني: سورية ليست قلقة من مشروع القرار المقترح في مجلس الأمن بشأن الأسلحة الكيميائية

الإثنين 23 أيلول , 2013

أكد السيد الرئيس بشار الأسد أن سورية ليست قلقة من مشروع القرار الذي اقترحته الولايات المتحدة وفرنسا وبريطانيا في مجلس الأمن بشأن الأسلحة الكيميائية في سورية لانها تلتزم بشكل كامل بكل الاتفاقيات التي توقعها وبأي شيء تعلن موافقتها عليه إضافة إلى اطمئنانها من الدور الذي تلعبه الصين وروسيا في المجلس كي لا يتم استخدام أي مبرر من اجل العدوان عليها.

وقال الرئيس الأسد في مقابلة مع التلفزيون الصيني سي سي تي في إن ما تقوم به الآن الولايات المتحدة وفرنسا وبريطانيا من خلال هذا القرار المطروح على مجلس الأمن أو الاتفاق الذي يريدون أن يتم الاتفاق عليه بين روسيا وأميركا الهدف منه هو أن يظهروا منتصرين في معاركهم ضد عدو وهمي يفترضون بانه سورية.

وأشار الرئيس الأسد إلى أن أول عامل يؤمن النجاح للمؤتمر الدولي حول سورية في جنيف هو إيقاف الأعمال الإرهابية وإيقاف دخول الإرهابيين من خارج سورية وإيقاف امداد هؤلاء الإرهابيين بالمال والسلاح.

وفيما يلي النص الكامل للمقابلة..

سي سي تي في..

مرحبا وتحياتي سيدي الرئيس.. شكرا جزيلا لموافقتكم على إجراء هذه المقابلة مع تلفزيون سي سي تي في الحكومي الصيني المركزي.

الرئيس الأسد..

أهلا وسهلا بك في سورية.. أرحب بك وأرحب بقناة سي سي تي في في سورية..

سي سي تي في..

وفقا للإتفاقية الإطارية بين روسيا والولايات المتحدة فإنه يتوجب بعد تسليم لائحة الأسلحة الكيميائية.. دخول الخبراء قبل تشرين الثاني وتدمير الأسلحة الكيميائية في أواسط عام 2014 هل تستطيع الحكومة السورية أن تكمل هذه المهمة في الوقت المحدد…

الرئيس الأسد..

نعم.. بالنسبة للحكومة السورية المطلوب منها شيئان.. الأول هو أن تقدم المعلومات والبيانات الضرورية لمنظمة حظر الأسلحة الكيميائية بحسب الاتفاقية الدولية وهذا تم تنفيذه منذ عدة أيام.. في الأسبوع الماضي لأن المعلومات جاهزة وموثقة. الأمر الآخر هو تأمين وصول المفتشين الذين سيأتون من منظمة حظر الأسلحة الكيميائية إلى مواقع إنتاج وتخزين الأسلحة الكيميائية وهذا طبعا أيضا لايوجد فيه مشكلة.. قد يكون هناك عقبة وحيدة وهي عقبة أساسية تتمثل بالوضع الأمني في بعض المناطق الأمر الذي ربما قد لا يسمح أو يضع بعض العقبات في وجه وصول بعض المفتشين.. أنا أقصد المناطق التي يوجد فيها مسلحون.. ربما يريدون عرقلة هذا العمل.. أي منع وصول المفتشين.. ونعرف بأن هؤلاء الإرهابيين يعملون تحت إمرة دول أخرى ربما تدفع الإرهابيين للقيام بأعمال تعيق وصول المفتشين من أجل اتهام الحكومة السورية بأنها تعرقل تنفيذ الاتفاقية.

سي سي تي في..

سيدي الرئيس.. كما ذكرت ربما هناك مشكلة في الوضع الميداني.. هل تظن أن الوضع الميداني داخل سورية الآن سيؤجل تنفيذ الاتفاقية…

الرئيس الأسد: مبدئيا المفترض لا.. لا يوجد أي مشكلة.. لكن كما قلت إذا كان هناك توجهات من بعض الدول التي تريد أن تطلب من الإرهابيين القيام بأعمال ضد المفتشين من أجل منعهم بهدف اتهام الحكومة السورية… تعلمين بأن الإرهابيين يستطيعون أن ينتقلوا من مكان إلى آخر.. هم ليسوا موجودين في مناطق محددة.. ولكن يبقى هذا مجرد احتمال. لا نستطيع أن نقدر هذا الشيء إلا عند مجيء المفتشين إلى سورية.

سي سي تي في.. قيل أن كميات الأسلحة الكيميائية في سورية كبيرة.. وانها تصل إلى 1000 طن.. هل هذا صحيح…

الرئيس الأسد..

سورية تنتج هذه الأسلحة منذ عقود.. ومن الطبيعي أن يكون هناك كميات كبيرة.. فنحن دولة في حالة حرب.. ونحن لدينا أراض محتلة منذ أكثر من 40 عاما.. لكن بكل الأحوال الجيش السوري هيأ نفسه بالأساس للقتال من خلال الأسلحة التقليدية.

سي سي تي في..

كيف تمنع الحكومة السورية المعارضة المسلحة من الوصول إلى هذه الأسلحة قبل تدميرها…

الرئيس الأسد..

الأسلحة الكيميائية دائما تخزن لدى أي دولة ولدى أي جيش في شروط خاصة من أجل منع العبث بها من قبل الإرهابيين أو من قبل أي مجموعات أخرى تخريبية.. قد تكون مجموعات تأتي من دول معادية.. فلا يوجد قلق بالنسبة لهذا الموضوع.. الأسلحة الكيميائية في سورية موجودة في مناطق ومواقع آمنة.. هناك سيطرة كاملة عليها من قبل الجيش العربي السوري.

سي سي تي في: ما زال لدى بعض الدول الغربية شكوك بنوايا الحكومة السورية فيما يتعلق بتدمير الأسلحة الكيميائية وفقا للقرار الذي اقترحته الولايات المتحدة وفرنسا وبريطانيا في الأمم المتحدة.. والذي يشير إلى أنه في حال لم تكمل سورية المهمة بحسب الاتفاقية الإطارية ستتخذ إجراءات عقابية ضد سورية.. كيف ترى ذلك…

الرئيس الأسد..

لا يوجد لدينا قلق من هذا الموضوع لسببين.. السبب الأول أن سورية منذ الاستقلال كانت دائما تلتزم بكل الاتفاقيات التي توقعها.. نحن نلتزم بشكل كامل بأي شيء نعلن أننا نوافق عليه.. فلا يوجد لدينا قلق من هذا الموضوع. الجانب الآخر الذي يجعلنا أيضا مطمئنين هو الدور الذي تلعبه اليوم الصين وروسيا في مجلس الأمن لكي لا يتم استخدام أي مبرر من أجل العدوان على سورية.. ولكن أريد أن أقول ان ما تقوم به الآن الولايات المتحدة وفرنسا وبريطانيا من خلال هذا القرار المطروح على مجلس الأمن.. أو الاتفاق الذي يريدون أن يتم الاتفاق عليه بين روسيا وأميركا.. الهدف منه هو أن يظهروا منتصرين في معاركهم ضد عدو وهمي يفترضون بأنه سورية.. لذلك علينا ألا نهتم كثيرا ولا نقلق من مثل هذه الطروحات أو مثل هذه الاتفاقيات.

سي سي تي في: في الصين نرى هذه الاتفاقية الإطارية حول تسليم الأسلحة الكيميائية مقابل السلام.. سيدي الرئيس هل أنتم قلقون من أن تقوم الدول الغربية باستغلال هذه الاتفاقية لإيجاد ذريعة أخرى للقيام بتدخل عسكري في سورية في المستقبل…

الرئيس الأسد..

هذا سؤال مهم جدا لأن الولايات المتحدة إذا أرادت أن تبحث عن مبرر للحرب فتستطيع أن تبحث عن مبررات أخرى.. وهي لم تتوقف عن الحرب لأن هناك فقط اتفاقا سوريا روسيا بالنسبة لتسليم الأسلحة الكيميائية.. وإنما لأن هناك رفضا عالميا ورفضا داخل الولايات المتحدة للحرب على سورية.. لأن الأسباب غير مقنعة.. وكذلك بنفس الوقت .. كما قلت قبل قليل.. الموقف الصيني والروسي داخل مجلس الأمن. طالما أن الولايات المتحدة تريد أن تستمر بسياسة الهيمنة على الدول الأخرى يجب أن نبقى قلقين بغض النظر عن الأزمة الحالية. طالما أن هناك دولا غربية تريد أن تتجاوز ميثاق الأمم المتحدة وتتجاوز القانون الدولي يجب أن نبقى قلقين دائما.. ليس فقط سورية وإنما الدول الصغرى تبقى دائما قلقة من أي تجاوز لميثاق الأمم المتحدة.

سي سي تي في: هل يمكن أن نعرف ما هو تأثير تسليم الأسلحة الكيميائية على الجيش السوري…

الرئيس الأسد..

لا توجد مشكلة حقيقية.. لأن الجيش السوري بني على أساس الحرب التقليدية.. هذه الترسانة من الأسلحة لن تتأثر بهذا الموضوع. أسلحة الدمار الشامل تستخدم عندما يذهب الوضع باتجاه الأسوأ.. البعض يصفه بحالة الانتحار.. نحن في سورية لا نذهب باتجاه حالة الانتحار. لذلك منذ عشر سنوات طرحنا على مجلس الأمن مقترحا سوريا من أجل إخلاء الشرق الأوسط من أسلحة الدمار الشامل.. فنحن مقتنعون بهذا الموضوع.. ولو كان يوءثر على قدرات الجيش في سورية لما قمنا بطرح هذه المبادرة منذ عشر سنوات.

سي سي تي في: خلال السنوات السابقة لماذا احتفظت سورية بالأسلحة الكيميائية…

الرئيس الأسد..

في الثمانينيات عندما بدأنا بإنتاجها.. كانت هناك فجوة بالنسبة للسلاح التقليدي بين سورية وإسرائيل.. وهي طبعا العدو الذي يحتل أراضينا. بعد تلك الفترة.. في النصف الثاني من التسعينيات توقفت سورية عن إنتاج هذه الأسلحة.. أي توقفت منذ أكثر من نحو خمسة عشر عاما.. بسبب أن الفجوة بالنسبة للأسلحة التقليدية تم ردم جزء منها.. واستمرينا بهذه السياسة. فإذا المبررات التي كان موجودة في الثمانينيات لوجود أسلحة دمار شامل في سورية لم تعد موجودة بشكل أساسي. ولذلك كما قلت قبل قليل طرحنا إخلاء الشرق الأوسط من أسلحة الدمار الشامل في عام 2003.

سي سي تي في: هل ستحصلون على شيء بالمقابل من حلفائكم بعد تسليم الأسلحة الكيميائية…

الرئيس الأسد..

لا أستطيع أن أقول انه شيء مقابل.. ولكن قبل المبادرة الروسية كان هناك عقود من الأسلحة بيننا وبين روسيا.. وكما أعلن الرئيس بوتين وعدد من المسؤولين الروس فهم مستمرون بتسليم هذه الأسلحة بحسب الاتفاقيات الموقعة بيننا وبين روسيا. فإذا تعزيز الترسانة السورية موجود قبل الاتفاقية وسيستمر وهو ليس له علاقة بالموضوع الكيميائي.. وإنما له علاقة بكوننا بلدا تعتدي عليه إسرائيل من وقت لآخر وتحتل أراضيه.. فمن الطبيعي أن نقوي الترسانة التقليدية ونعزز قوة القوات المسلحة لتكون قادرة على الدفاع عن سورية.



#Syria: GRAPHIC: TIME Magazine’s eyewitness to young Syrian man beheaded by Obama-backed terrorists:
Thou they have no proof ,they do not “forget” to blame the SAA ,a demonstration of bias pushed to extremes!
TIME wrote:”militants publicly executing, by decapitation, a young Syrian in the town of Keferghan, near Aleppo, on August 31, 2013.”-of course they claimed that they had no idea “why”?!Aren’t there any Arabic translators when you need them?Why only their comments and not the sound of “cheerers ” was aired?
Foreign media is trying to suggest the lose of control !Which is not the case!What about a better suggestion:CLOSE THE ROOT OF POURING DEVILS ON SYRIA’S BORDERS!THOSE FANATICS ARE THE AL QAEDA YOUR #OBOMBER IS FINANCING AND SENDING GUNS TO,

The man was brought in to the square. His eyes were blindfolded. I began shooting pictures, one after the other. It was to be the fourth execution that day I would photograph. I was feeling awful; several times I had been on the verge of throwing up. But I kept it under control because as a journalist I knew I had to document this, as I had the three previous beheadings I had photographed that day, in three other locations outside Aleppo.

The crowd began cheering. Everyone was happy. I knew that if I tried to intervene I would be taken away, and that the executions would go ahead. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to change what was happening and I might put myself in danger.

I saw a scene of utter cruelty: a human being treated in a way that no human being should ever be treated. But it seems to me that in two and a half years, the war has degraded people’s humanity. On this day the people at the execution had no control over their feelings, their desires, their anger. It was impossible to stop them.

I don’t know how old the victim was but he was young. He was forced to his knees. The rebels around him read out his crimes from a sheet of paper. They stood around him. The young man was on his knees on the ground, his hands tied. He seemed frozen.

Two rebels whispered something into his ear and the young man replied in an innocent and sad manner, but I couldn’t understand what he said because I don’t speak Arabic.

At the moment of execution the rebels grasped his throat. The young man put up a struggle. Three or four rebels pinned him down. The man tried to protect his throat with his hands, which were still tied together. He tried to resist but they were stronger than he was and they cut his throat. They raised his head into the air. People waved their guns and cheered. Everyone was happy that the execution had gone ahead.

That scene in Syria, that moment, was like a scene from the Middle Ages, the kind of thing you read about in history books. The war in Syria has reached the point where a person can be mercilessly killed in front of hundreds of people—who enjoy the spectacle.

As a human being I would never have wished to see what I saw. But as a journalist I have a camera and a responsibility. I have a responsibility to share what I saw that day. That’s why I am making this statement and that’s why I took the photographs. I will close this chapter soon and try never to remember it.

افتتاحية قناة فوكس نيوز الإخبارية الأمريكية،

شاهدوا بأم أعينكم كيف يتحدث الإعلام الأمركي عن أوباما ويصفه بالكاذب والفاقد للمصداقية:

حقاً سيدي الرئيس ؟؟ أتريد من الشعب الأمريكي الآن و بعد كل ما مر عليه من أزمات أن يصدق ما تقوله له و يتبعك بشكل أعمى للدخول في نزاع شرق أوسطي جديد؟؟

تسعى إدارة الرئيس أوباما في هذا الأسبوع للحصول على موافقة الكونغرس لتوجيه ضربة لسورية، و ما الذي تقوله هنا؟: ندخل سورية و نقوم فيها بضربة عسكرية صغيرة تستغرق بضعة أيام دون الهدف لتغيير النظام و نتوقف بعد ذلك، سوف نريهم قدرتنا. لكن في هذا الوقت تصطف المدمرات الروسية و الأمريكية و عدد غير مصرح عنه من الغواصات قبالة الساحل السوري، كما أن القوارب الإيرانية السريعة متواجدة بالفعل في الخليج الفارسي حيث تتوضع سفن أمريكية أخرى هناك.

الآن دعني أستوضح فيما إذا كنت أفهم ما يحصل: نحن نتوجه لقصف سورية بسبب هجوم مزعوم بالسلاح الكيماوي، و نجازف بحصول مواجهة مباشرة محتملة مع إيران و روسيا في تحرك، من سيكون المستفيد منه في نهاية المطاف ،القاعدة.؟

وماذا عن إسرائيل ؟ نحن نعلم أنك لا تحب بيبي( لقب نيتينياهو)، و لكن أليس من التزاماتنا ألا نضع حلفائنا في مرمى الخطر،و ما هو مبررك؟؟
لقد قلتَ سابقا: “أنا لم أقل إن ذلك خط أحمر، العالم هو من قال إنه خط أحمر، إن الكونغرس هو من قال إنه خط أحمر عندما صادق على المعاهدة. إن مصداقيتي الشخصية ليست على المحك، إن مصداقية المجتمع الدولي هل التي على المحك”
هذا ليس صحيحاُ، هذا فقط حوار آخر من حواراتك الزائفة كهذا أيضا
عندما قلتَ “إن الخط الأحمر بالنسبة لنا هو، عندما نبدأ بالقول أن كمية من الأسلحة الكيميائية قد نقلت من مكان إلى آخر أو أنها استخدمت، فهذا ما سيغير من حساباتي”

الكذبة تبقى كذبة، أنت قلتها و العالم سمعها.و سوريا سمعتها و لم تكترث لك، و مضت بفعل ما تريده بكل الأحوال.و بالمناسبة إذا كنت قلت بأنك لم تضع أية خطوط حمراء ،إذا لماذا سنذهب إلى الحرب؟ لا أحد يحترمنا، لا أحد يخشانا، أنت من فعل بنا هذا. لماذا تضع خطوطاً حمراء في الوقت الذي يعرف فيه العالم أجمع أنها ليست إلا أضواء خضراء, مراراً و تكراراً!

ولكني اتفق معك في شي، إن مصداقيتك الشخصية ليست على المحك، فمع احترامي لك سيدي الرئيس أنت لا تملك المصداقية ، فلكي يمتلك المرء المصداقية عليه أن يتمتع بالوضوح و الثبات، و يجب أن تكون تحركاتك سريعة و لا ريب فيها. لقد فقدت مصداقيتك عندما تركت هؤلاء الأمريكان فوق سطح المبنى في بنغازي ، بينما انطلقت بطائرتك الرئاسية لحضور حفل خيري في لاس فيغاس.و كان ذلك إشارة واضحة إلى العالم بأن الوقت ملائم لمهاجمة الأمريكيين بمن فيهم السفير، وبالمناسبة ماذا حدث لتعهدك عندما قلت: ” إننا سنضعهم بين يدي العدالة “، لقد مضت سنة على ذلك، فأين هي تلك العدالة!؟

والآن أنت تختبأ وراء الكونغرس كي تتمكن من إلقاء اللوم عليه في عدم اتخاذك لأي تحرك، أو أنك ستقول بأننا سنذهب للحرب بكل الأحوال، ما هذا الذي يحدث، إن ذلك يوحي بأن هذا وقت وقت تفتقد فيه واشنطن للبصيرة و الحرفية. إن أرواح الأمريكيين على المحك، إننا أمة أنهكتها الحرب، و قد اعترفت بذلك بنفسك، لقد تعبنا من إراقة دماء الشبان و الشابات الأمركيين في جزء من العالم حيث يكرهوننا،و لتزيد الطين بلة، فانت لا تهتم بالمقاتلين السابقين بعد عودتهم إلى البلاد، و قد فقدوا بعض أعضاء أجسادهم و أصبحوا بحاجة للمساعدة أكثر من وقت مغادرتهم للبلاد.

وإن كنت حازماً بشدة ضد قتل الأطفال لدرجة أنك مستعد لإرسالنا إلى نزاع جديد، فهل تستطيع أن تضمن بأن صواريخ تومهاوك بزنة الآلاف الباوندات التي ستسقطها على سورية لن تقتل الأطفال؟ أم أنهم سيكونون ببساطة أضرارك الجانبية التي لا مفر منها؟ هل ستكون حياة أولئك أقل أهمية من حياة الأطفال الذين سنذهب للانتقام لهم؟ قل لنا، ما هي المصلحة الاستراتيجية لأمريكا؟ و ما هي نهاية اللعبة؟ هل فكرت بمخرج لذلك ؟ أم أن السياسة هي جزء من معادلاتك الشخصية التي تجعل المسألة كلها معنية بك.

هل القصد هو توجيه ضربة تحذيرية لتحميل الأسد المسؤوولية؟ أم لتقليص قدرته على القيام بالمزيد من الهجمات مستقبلاً؟ أو هي لردع تصرفاته في المستقبل؟ هل تعتقد جدلاً بأن هذا الرجل و بعد مقتل أكثر من 100 ألف شخص يخاف منك؟!
و إن كنت لا تعتزم إسقاطه و تتوقع أن يتمكن من تجاوز الضربة، فإنك تجعل الولايات المتحدة تبدو أكثر ضعفاً. سوريا البلد الصغير ينجو من هجمة يتعرض لها من أقوى دولة عسكرياً في العالم، أو على الأقل هذا ما كنا عليه قبل ظهورك.

و إلى جانب من تقف أنت؟؟ دعنا نفكر في هذا الأمر. هؤلاء هم الثوار السوريون الذين تريد الوقوف إلى جانبهم (كما تظهر الصورة) يقومون بقتل شباب في مقتبل العمر بطريقة الإعدام رمياً بالرصاص.

وإن كان استخدام الأسلحة الكيماوية يعتبر انتهالكاً للمعايير الدولية، فلماذا لا يساندك المجتمع الدولي في موقفك. إن البريطانيين رفضوا و لأول مرة منذ عام 1782 طلباً بالتدخل العسكري. كما رفض الناتو ذلك أيضاً. و رفضه الاتحاد الأوروبي أيضاً. الأمم المتحدة ما تزال تحقق طبعاً. و الإيطاليون- هم طبعاً ما زالوا مشغولين بالرقص مع برلسكوني في حفلاته الماجنة.
وصديقك العزيز بوتين اضطر لتلقينك درساً في القانون الدولي حين قال لك: “فقط مجلس الأمن بإمكانه فرض استخدام القوة على الدول ذات السيادة, وأية ذريعة أخرى قد يتم استخدامها لفرض القوة ضد الدول ذات السيادة, هو أمر مرفوض ولا يمكن تفسيره إلا بأنه عدوان”.

لا يسعك دفع عصا في عين النمر دون أن تتوقع منه الرد عليك. إن الثوار الذين ترغب بدعمهم هم من القاعدة (هل تذكرهم، هم من دمروا برجي التجارة العالمية)،و أنصار الشريعة، لا بد أنك تذكرهم ( فقد قتلوا أربعة أمريكيين في بنغازي)، و ماذا عن الإخوان المسلمين ( لقد ضحيت بصديقنا حسني مبارك من أجلهم، و من وقتها و الأمور جيدة في مصر)..
وبالمناسبة، لم يقتل مواطنون أمريكيون في سورية كما قتل غيرهم في بنغازي، لكن علينا الذهاب إلى الحرب لحفظ ماء الوجه بسبب تصريحات غبية تقول الآن أنك لم تصرح بها؟. هل فكرت فيما سينتهي عليه الأمر؟ إن سياستك الخارجية الغير مسؤولة ، و مظهر القوة الذي ادعيته قد فرضا عليك ما لم تكن لتريده.

سيدي الرئيس ، في الماضي عندما كانت أمريكا تحظى بالاحترام و المهابة،لم يكن أحد ليتجرأ على تجاوز خط أحمر لرئيس أمريكي. تذكر قولك بأن لن تذهب إلى الحرب إلا إذا كان هناك تهديد وشيك لللأمن القومي. فما هي حجتك، و على حد علمي، لم يقم الأسد يوماً بمهاجمتنا. و بالمناسبة أيضاً، ألم يتم انتخابك كرئيس معادٍ للحروب،ألم تصوت ضد الحرب على العراق؟ ها نحن بعد خمس سنوات من توليك الرئاسة، و رجالنا و نسائنا الأمريكان ما زالوا في الميدان، يقاتلون رجالاً همجيين في كهوف أفغانستان، و هم سيعودون إلى قبائلهم حالما نخرج من هناك. كما لم يسر موضوع الانسحاب من العراق بشكل سلس هو الآخر.

والسيناتور ماكين، نحن جميعاً نحترمك لخدماتك، و للتضحيات التي قدمتها لهذه البلاد، لكن في النهاية قد تكون على حق، ربما الأمر كله مجر لعبة (في إشارة للصورة التي التقطت لماكين وهو يلعب البوكر على هاتفه أثناء مناقشة موضوع سوريا في لجنة الشؤون الخارجية).
سيدي الرئيس، هل بإمكانك أن تفهم لماذا يعارض الأمريكيون هذه الحرب بشكل حازم؟ إننا ننظر إلى الحروب من خلال الموشور العراقي، و من خلال الأكاذيب و القصص المزيفة المتعلقة ببنغازي. تريدنا أن نثق بك، لكنك لا تمتلك المصداقية، لماذا يتوجب على الأمريكان الإيمان بأن ما تقوله صادق؟

ليس هناك من مخرج لهذا الوضع،و نحن لا نستطيع تحمل تبعات ذلك، إننا لا نريد حرباً عالميةً ثالثة.

وفي معرض الحديث، سيدي الرئيس ألم تفز بجائزة نوبل للسلام؟!! نعم ، كان ذلك أنت.. أعدها.

Atentie Romania-AlQaeda este inamicul nu prietenul ce trebuie ajutat in Siria!

Atentie Romania-AlQaeda este inamicul nu prietenul ce trebuie ajutat in Siria!

Cine se poarta ca o sluga,va fi tratat ca atare!Speram ca nu este si cazul #Romaniei!

Iugoslavia 1999- peste 5000 de morţi dintre care 400 copii.Natiunea a fost distrusa,forte sectare si seditioniste continua ceea ce armata regulara a inceput.

Afganistan 2001 – peste 50 000 morţi, aproape 1 milion de refugiaţi. Războiul încă continuă prin intermediul Al Qaeda. SUA “a declarat un război oficial terorismului”, în care un loc aparte îl are gruparea teroristă Al-Qaeda. Dar se stie că la baza aceste organizaţiei stă aşa numitul Osamma Bin Laden o ,,creatură” a Washingtonului ce apare în perioada Războiului Rece şi anume după anul 1979 (anul invaziei Afganistanului de către sovetici). Tot Bin Laden a fost şi agent CIA, folosit de către guvernul american în lupta cu fosta URSS. Viitoarea organizaţie teroristă Al-Qaeda îl va avea drept conducător şi militant principal pe Bin Laden. Deci în perioada rece fostul terorist Nr 1 a fost parte componentă a marelui joc american. După căderea Uniunii Sovetice, SUA asocierea cu Al Qaeda, gruparea lui Osamma Bin Laden a fost ascunsa opiniei publice,continuand sa serveasca din subteranele geopoliticii si implicit ,intereselor americane.

Iraq 2003- mai mult de 1 milion iraqieni ucişi. Ca şi în Siria, pretextul a fost că regimul lui Saddam Hussein deţinea arme biologice. După 10 ani de căutări americanii aşa şi nu au mai găsit presupusele arme, în schimb l-au spanzurat în public pe preşedintele Iraqului iar după unele informaţii secrete armata americană însăşi a folosit substanţe interzise (fosforul alb).Războiul continuă prin intermediul fortelor proxy:Al Qaeda.

Siria-Situaţia tensionată de acolo este actualmente în vizorul întregii opinii internaţionale.
Coaliţia dintre SUA şi gruparea teroristă Al-Qaeda : “opoziţia siriană” este înarmată şi susţinută de către Occident şi Washington si formată din rebeli islamişti , insurgenţii grupării Al-Qaeda, deci reiese că SUA la scenă deschisă finanţează terorismul şi gruparea teroristă care după spusele guvernului american este răspunzătoare de actele teroriste din 11 septembrie 2011 de la World Trade Center.
Devenit un laitmotiv ,ori de cîte ori americanii intervin militar într-o ţară a lumii, invocă „interesul naţional al SUA”, „instaurarea democraţiei”, „apărarea valorilor democratice” … „instaurarea democraţiei” şi „apărarea valorilor democratice” sunt ajutate de surse proxy ,paramilitare ,sponsorizate ,chiar infiintate de catre americani şi ulterior, prin invazia unor ţări cu tradiţii, culturi şi religii diametral opuse celor occidentale, aşa cum sunt Egiptul, Libia, Irak, si actualmente Siria.Astfel, una dintre marile puteri ale lumii și cea mai mare organizație teroristă își vor coordona eforturile pentru un interes comun. Seful Frontului Jabhat al Nusra, ramura Al Qaeda in Siria, Abou Mohamad al-Joulani, a facut un anunt comun cu liderul al-Qaeda, Sheik Ayman al-Zawahri legat de participarea alaturi de SUA, la indepartarea de la putere a presedintelui sirian Bashar al Assad. Încă o dovadă a apropierii reţelei Al-Qaeda de guvernul american sunt declaraţiile fratelui liderului Al-Qaeda, Mohamed al-Zawahiri care propune un armistiţiu reciproc dintre Occident şi islamişti.
Conjuctura actuală din Siria reaminteşte scenariul din El Salvador. Acolo s-a mers pe cale înlocuirii opoziţiei cu grupările teroriste .Pentru Siria, SUA insistă şi cere partenerilor implicare militară cat mai grabnică,dar Anglia a refuzat deja, Germania este plină campanie electorală si nu se prea găbesc să-şi trimită soldaţii la moarte sigură,iar Franta a anuntat ca va astepta rezultatele investigatiilor efectuate de membrii ONU.
Doar premierul Erdogan s-a grabit sa sustina aceasta invazie,in front comun,asa cum era de asteptat,cu reprezentatii entitatii sioniste,dar acest lucru era de asteptat,tinand cont de trecutul premierului turc si stransele relatii ale acestuia cu AlQaeda si de prezenta sustinere pe care acesta o acorda gruparilor inarmate,facilitandu-le transportul de arme,inclusiv chimice si infiltrarea de insurgenti pe teritoriul sirian.

Dar situatia este mai îngrijorătoare decât atât,datorita fenomenelor de radicalizare. Wahhabismul, un curent islamic fundamentalist care promovează jihadul şi intoleranţa, devine tot mai popular în comunităţile tolerate sau beneficiind de statut de “refugiati” din tarile nou devenite membre ale UE si/sau NATO, iar maniera wahhabiţilor de a se impune prin ameninţări şi forţă pare impozantă şi folosirea de catre acestia a finantarilor cu petrodolarii monarhiilor Golfului devine atractivă pentru o parte din tineri. Ideologia wahhabiţilor este atractivă şi pentru reprezentanţii păturilor social vulnerabile, indiferent de etnia acestora. Pericolul care survine din partea acestui curent extremist este conştientizat de autorităţi însă procesele de radicalizare nu sunt stopate în mod eficient,fapt datorat si anumitor ordonante emise de catre marile puteri occidentale,pentru protejarea membrilor asa zisei “opozitii” din exil-centrul de emitere si coordonare al extremistilor infiltrati in Siria,ordonante ce incalca dreptul independentei statelor membre,fenomen ce ia amploare si in Romania,unde cetatenii nativi ai tarii sunt expusi amenintarilor si multiplelor actiuni de intimidare a libertatii de expresie si opinie personala si unde anumite trusturi de presa functioneaza ca centru de informare a acestor sustinatori ai terorismului international.
Conform acestui drept garantat de constitutia Romaniei,autorul acestui articol isi sustine optiunea de a se opune interventiei militare in Siria si va roaga sa urmariti aceste imagini,ce au determinat consolidarea acestei optiuni:


Libieni -luptatori pentru “democratie”,alaturi de AlQaeda in Siria!!






În cadrul summitului G20 de la Sankt Petersburg, preşedintele Vladimir Putin a declarat că ţara sa ar putea interveni în ajutorul Siriei în cazul unei agresiuni militare străine.
Privitor la poziţia americană faţă de Siria, Putin a declarat: “În timpul dezbaterilor din cadrul Congresului american privind utilizarea forţei în Siria, „autorităţile SUA mint atunci cînd declară că atacurile americane nu vor conduce la consolidarea poziţiilor Al-Qaeda în această ţară şi cînd afirmă, de asemenea, că în Siria nici nu există membri Al-Qaeda” Preşedintele rus a insistat asupra faptului că Al-Qaeda este una dintre principalele organizaţii care luptă de partea Opoziţiei siriene. „Cea mai importantă formaţiune de luptă este aşa-zisa Al-Nusra, o unitate a Al-Qaeda, iar americanii ştiu acest lucru”, a punctat Putin.

Într-un final cele mai mari motivaţii le au doar SUA si protejatul sau stat sionist şi gruparea teroristă Al-Qaeda. Ironia sorţii sau geopolitica agresiva la fel ca si cazul Republicii Dominicane, Chile, Nicaragua, Panama, Vietnam, Libia, Irak, Egipt,Sudan,Somalia,Afganistan…etc,unde americanii au dat tonul “revoltelor” si ulterior, războaielor?

Russia’s early warning radars detected the launch of two ballistic rockets in the eastern Mediterranean Sea

Russia’s early warning radars detected the launch of two ballistic rockets in the eastern Mediterranean Sea

Russia’s early warning radars detected the launch of two ballistic rockets in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, Russia’s Defense Ministry stated. Israel later claimed responsibility for firing the target test rockets.

The launch took place at 06:16 GMT Tuesday, according to Russia’s Ministry of Defense.

The trajectory of the missiles is reported to have been from the central part of the Mediterranean Sea towards the eastern landmass. Both rockets have allegedly fallen into the sea, RIA Novosti news agency reported.

Russia’s President Putin has already been informed about the incident by Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu.

The Syrian embassy in Moscow currently has no information on the incident.

There were no rocket attack signals or blasts in Damascus, the Russian embassy in Syria noted.

Syria’s missile warning system has not detected any rockets landing on their territory, a Syrian security source told Lebanese channel al-Manar TV.

Initially, the Israeli military apparently had no data on the launch either. However, later Israel claimed a joint missile launch with the US in the Mediterranean Sea.

No American ships or planes stationed in the Mediterranean have launched any missiles, US officials told CBS News.

The UK has stressed that they “have nothing to do” with the launch.

A NATO spokesman said the alliance was trying to verify the reports. Until then, the bloc will not comment on the incident.

Armavir, an early warning system against missile attack, is situated in southern Russia. It is run by the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces. They provide radar coverage of the Middle East. There are two radars there, with one of them facing southwest and the other southeast.

Mr.President Bashar al-Assad gave an interview to Le Figaro.

Mr.President Bashar al-Assad gave an interview to Le Figaro.

President Bashar al-Assad gave an interview to Le Figaro. Following is the full text:

Malbrunot: Mr. President, the Americans and the French have accused you of perpetrating a chemical attack on the 21st of August in Ghouta, which led to the death of hundreds. Do you have evidence to suggest that your army did not launch the attack?

President al-Assad: First of all, anyone making such an accusation is also responsible for providing the evidence to substantiate the allegation. We have challenged them to present a shred of legitimate evidence, which they have not been able to do. Since their foreign policy should be tailored to suit the interests of their own people, we have challenged them to present legitimate evidence to their own public opinion to substantiate their claims; again they have not done so.

Secondly, where is the logic in us carrying out an attack of this nature: two years into the crisis I can confidently state that the situation on the ground is much better now than it was a year ago; how is it conceivable then that an army making significant advancements on the ground through conventional armament would resort to using weapons of mass destruction?

I am neither confirming nor denying that we possess such weapons – this is not a matter for discussion. For the sake of argument, if the army had such weapons and decided to use them, is it conceivable that it would use them in areas where its own troops are deployed? Where is the logic in that? Additionally is it really plausible that the use of these weapons in a heavily populated area in the suburbs of the capital did not kill tens of thousands; these substances travel in the air.

Malbrunot: Were soldiers from the Syrian Army injured by the weapons? President al-Assad: Yes, in the ‘Baharia’ area, in the suburbs of Damascus; the inspectors from the UN team met with them in hospital.

Malbrunot: Some do acknowledge that there has been some advancement by the army on the ground; however in other areas the rebels have also advanced and you are looking to wipe them out.

President al-Assad: Again, the areas in question are residential areas. The use of chemical weapons in these areas would result in the deaths of tens of thousands. All the accusations are based on unsubstantiated claims made by the terrorists and random pictures and videos posted on the Internet.

Malbrunot: The Americans have stated that they have intercepted a telephone conversation between an executive in you inner circle and officers in the Army giving the order to use these weapons.

President al-Assad: If the Americans, the French or the British had a single shred of evidence they would have disclosed it from day one. We will not contest rumours and dubious allegations; we will only discuss substantiated truths – if they have any, they should present them.

Malbrunot: Is it possible that someone from your inner circle or officers in the Syrian Army took the decision without your knowledge?

President al-Assad: Again – regardless of whether we do or do not possess such weapons, in any country that does posses these weapons, the decision to deploy is usually centralized. Either way, this is classified military information.

Malbrunot: But this is what Jihad Makdissi stated.

President al-Assad: No, at the time, Jihad said that should we possess these weapons, we would not use them. Whether we do or do not possess them is an entirely Syrian affair.

Malbrunot: President Obama has postponed a military strike on Syria, how do you explain this?

President al-Assad: Some have seen Obama as weak because of his decision to withdraw or delay a possible strike by days or weeks; by waging a war on Syria, others have seen him as a strong leader of a powerful country.

From my perspective, power lies in your ability to prevent wars not in igniting them. Power comes from ones ability to stand up and acknowledge their mistakes; if Obama was strong, he would have stood up and said that there is no evidence that the Syrian government used chemical weapons, he would have stood up and said that the right way forward is to wait for the results of the UN investigations and work through the UN Security Council. However, as I see it, he is weak because he succumbed to internal pressure from small groups and threatened military action. As I said strong leaders are those who prevent wars not those who inflame them.

Malbrunot: What do you say to members of congress whose vote will determine whether or not there will be any military action?

President Assad: Before they vote, they should ask themselves a simple question: What have previous wars achieved for America, or even for Europe? What has the world achieved from the war in Libya and the spread of terrorism in its aftermath? What has the world achieved from the wars in Iraq and other places? What will the world achieve from supporting terrorism in Syria?

Members of congress are entrusted to serve in the best interests of their country. Before they vote, they need to weigh up their decision in the interests of their own country. It is not in the interests of the US to perpetuate instability and extremism in the Middle East. It is not in their interests to continue – what George Bush started – spreading wars in the world.

If they think logically and in the interests of their country, they will not find any benefits to these wars. However many of them they have not mastered the art of logic in their political decision-making.

Malbrunot: How will you respond to these strikes, should they happen?

President al-Assad: If we think of the Middle East as a barrel of explosives close to a fire that is coming ever closer, then it becomes clear that the issue is no longer contained to a Syrian response, but rather what will happen after the first strike. The architects of the war can define the first strike – in other words they can determine what they will do, but beyond that it is impossible for anyone to predict what will follow. Once the barrel explodes, everyone loses control; nobody can determine the outcome, however what is certain is the spread of chaos, wars and extremism in all its forms everywhere.

Malbrunot: Is there a danger that it will spill into a regional conflict?

President al-Assad: Of course, this is the first and most dangerous risk. The issue today is no longer just about Syria, but about a whole region that is interlinked, socially, politically and militarily; the resulting challenges are regional, not just Syrian.

Malbrunot: So is it likely that Israel would be one of your targets?

President al-Assad: You don’t really expect me to announce how we will respond?! It is not realistic that we would announce our plans, but as I said there are many players involved and narrowing the conversation to just one player diminishes the significance of what will happen.

Malbrunot: What do you say to Jordan who is known to be training the rebels on the ground? What is at risk for Jordan should the strike occur in favour of the rebels and terrorists?

President al-Assad: Our policy has always been to not export our problems to neighbouring countries. We have been striking the thousands of terrorists that have entered Syria via Jordan, and Jordan has announced that it would not provide a base for any military strikes against Syria. However, should we not succeed in fighting terrorism in Syria, we can only expect that it will spread to other countries along with the ensuing chaos and extremism.

Malbrunot: So are you warning Jordan and Turkey?

President al-Assad: We have said this before and we have communicated this to them directly and indirectly. I believe Jordan is fully aware of the situation, despite the pressure on it to continue to be a route for this terrorism. As for Erdogan, I don’t think he has a clue of what he is doing. Our priority is to fight terrorism within Syria.

Malbrunot: How will your allies – Hezbollah and Iran – respond to any strike? Are you counting on their support should you be attacked?

President al-Assad: I do not wish to speak on their behalf, their statements have been very clear. We are all aware that this is a regional issue and as such it is impossible to separate the interests of Syria, Iran, Hezbollah and other countries that are supporting us.

Today, stability in the region depends on the situation in Syria; Russia fully fathoms this. Russia is neither defending the President nor Syria, but rather it is defending stability in this region knowing all too well that otherwise it will also be affected. To assess the situation through the narrow lens of a Syrian-Iranian alliance is a naïve and over simplistic view; we are dealing with a situation of far greater significance.

Malbrunot: Have the Russians reassured you that they will reach out to the Americans to try to attenuate the strike?

President al-Assad: I don’t think anyone can trust the Americans; I don’t think there is a country in the world that can guarantee that the Americans will or will not take any form of action towards another country, so it is pointless to look for such reassurances. The Americans adopt one position in the morning, only to endorse the complete opposite in the evening. As long as the US does not comply with or listen to the UN, we should not be reassured.

Malbrunot: How can we stop the war, the crisis in Syria has been on going for more than two-and-half years? You have suggested a National Unity government, the international community has suggested Geneva II, how can we stop the blood bath in Syria?


President al-Assad: Discussing a solution at the beginning of the crisis is very different to discussing it today. From the beginning I have emphasised that a resolution can only be achieved through dialogue, which would lead to solutions that can be implemented through political measures.

The situation today is different; today we are fighting terrorists, 80-90% of them affiliated to Al-Qaeda. These terrorists are not interested in reform, or politics, or legislations. The only way to deal with the terrorists is to strike them; only then can we talk about political steps. So in response to your question, the solution today lies in stopping the influx of terrorists into Syria and stopping the financial, military or any other support they receive.

Malbrunot: Who is supporting them?

President al-Assad: Primarily Saudi Arabia, followed by Turkey and Jordan by streaming the militants into Syria, as well as France, America and Britain.

Malbrunot: Do you have proof that France has provided arms to the terrorists?

President al-Assad: It is evident enough through France’s political stance and its provocative role in the situation as dictated to it by Qatar and other countries.

Malbrunot: Mr. President, are you willing to invite the opposition to come to Syria, to guarantee their safety in order for you all to sit around a table and find a solution?

President al-Assad: In January of this year we launched an initiative that addresses the points you raised and others in order to move forward with a political solution. However, this opposition that you refer to was manufactured abroad – manufactured by Qatar, France and others – it is not a Syrian opposition, and as such it takes orders from its masters who have forbidden it from engaging with this initiative. In addition to the fact that since they were manufactured abroad they lack local public support. Despite all their shortfalls, we did invite them but they did not respond.

Malbrunot: However some did not respond for fear of their security, they fear being imprisoned like Abdul Aziz al-Khayer. Can you provide them with guarantees?

President al-Assad: We have provided guarantees and I have spoken of these political points including guarantees of security to any member of the opposition wanting to come to Syria for the purpose of dialogue. However, they were either not willing to come or maybe they weren’t given permission to come. We have not killed or captured any member of the opposition. Abdul Aziz al-Khayer’s friends are all in Syria – you can see for yourself. Why would we target one of them and ignore the rest? Where is the logic in that?

Malbrunot: How do you explain the French position towards you today, you were once friends with Sarkozy and you enjoyed a friendly relationship with France and visited several times? How do you explain this U-turn?

President al-Assad: It wasn’t a friendly relationship. It was clear from the beginning that France, at the request of the Americans, was trying to manipulate Syrian policy. Even the positive shift towards Syria in 2008 was due to Qatari influence, and so was the negative U-turn in 2011. It is very clear that French policy towards Syria is entirely based on American and Qatari desires.

Malbrunot: French Parliamentarians will meet on Wednesday. There is a big debate in France now, with some believing that Hollande has gone too far on this issue. What is your message to the French Parliamentarians before they convene and vote on the strike?

President al-Assad: A few days ago the French Interior Minister was quoted as saying that “France’s participation is dependent on the US congress,” with no mention to the French Parliament. Allow me then to pose this question to you: To whom does the French government answer to – the French parliament or the US congress? Since 2003, on the back of the invasion of Iraq and its earlier position before the war, France has relinquished its independence and has become a part of American foreign policy. This applies to Chirac after the war on Iraq, to Sarkozy, and today to Hollande.

So the question really is: will the meeting of the French parliamentarians return the independence of France’s decisions back to the French? We hope that this would be the case. Since they will be working in the interests of France, will the representatives of the French people take the side of extremism and terrorism? Will they support those who perpetrated the September 11 attacks in New York, or those who bombed the Metro in Spain? Will the representatives of the French people support those who killed the innocents in France?

How is it possible for them to stand against individuals like Mohammed Merah in France and yet support others like him in Syria? How can France fight terrorism in Mali and support it in Syria? Will France adopt the American model of double standards? How can the parliamentarians convince the French public that their country is secular, yet at the same time it supports extremism and sectarianism in other parts of the world? How can France advocate for democracy but yet one of its closest allies – Saudi Arabia – is still living in medieval times?

My message to the French Parliamentarians is: go back to the principles of the French Revolution that the whole world is proud of: Liberty, Justice, Equality.

Malbrunot: You cited French national interests; if France intervened militarily, would their interests in Syria or the region be targeted?

President al-Assad: I do not know if your interests will be targeted or not, this will depend on the consequences of the war. But most certainly, France will lose its interests. There is hatred and contempt towards French policy, which would inevitably directly affect French interests in the region. In addition, unlike previous times, significant countries in the region have started to look away from Europe towards the East for alternative partnerships where there is mutual respect between countries.

Malbrunot: So you are calling out for rationality and reason?

President al-Assad: For rationality and ethics.

Malbrunot: Are you planning to run for office in the next presidential elections?

President al-Assad: This really depends on the will of the Syrian people at the time. If I feel that there is a strong public desire for to me to run, I will not hesitate and vice versa. We may not have accurate measures at the moment, but we do have strong indications. The strongest indicator is that when you are fighting terrorists from over 80 countries who are supported by Western and Arab states, if your people do not embrace you, you simply cannot carry on. Syria has been resilient for two-and-a-half years this is an important indication of strong public support.

Malbrunot: Mr. President how much are you prepared to fight in this crisis?

President al-Assad: We have two options: we either defend our country against terrorism or we surrender. The history in this region has never known surrender; it has seen many wars, yet it has never and will never surrender.

Malbrunot: So will fight and sacrifice your life for Syria?

President al-Assad: When it becomes a matter of patriotism, we will all fight to defend our country – whether we are citizens or the president, it is not about the individual but rather about the whole nation. What is the point in living if your country is dead?

Malbrunot: Mr. President, do you take responsibility for the mistakes that have been committed including those by the army and the security forces? Do you accept that mistakes have been made?


President al-Assad: Any human being makes mistakes in their work. If you do not make mistakes you are either not human or you do not work. I am a human being and I work. However, when you want to evaluate your mistakes you need to do so in hindsight when the events are behind you and you are able to see the results of your actions. We are currently in the heart of the battle; when it is over, we can assess the results and determine whether we were right or wrong on particular matters.

Malbrunot: Are you confident of winning the battle?

President al-Assad: The history of our region teaches us that when our people defend themselves, they inevitably win. This is not a war against the President or the Government alone, it is a war against the entire country, and we shall be victorious.

Malbrunot: Having said this, your army has lost control over certain areas in the North, East and South. Do you believe that you can regain these areas?

President al-Assad: The issue is not about labeling areas as being under our control or under the control of the militants; there isn’t a single area that the army has planned to enter and not been able to do so. The real challenge is the continuous influx of terrorists from across the borders and the acts they have perpetrated at a social level in the areas they have infiltrated.

Malbrunot: Moratinos, a previous friend of yours, told me few days ago that he cannot understand what is in Bashar al-Assad’s mind, how could he possibly commit such violence in his country.

President al-Assad: There is an analogy that can also be asked here: how could France allow the killing of the terrorists who terrified French citizens? How did the British deal with the riots in Britain last year? Why was the army deployed in Los Angeles in the nineties? Why are other countries allowed to fight terrorism and Syria isn’t? Why is it forbidden for Mohammed Merah to stay alive in France and to kill civilians and yet terrorists are allowed to remain alive in Syria and kill innocent people?

Malbrunot: Mr. President, how has your daily routine changed in terms of leading the country since the beginning of the crisis? Some suggest that after two-and-a-half years Bashar al-Assad is leading the country alone.

President al-Assad: This is what I meant earlier, if the West is against me and so were the Syrian people, if I was alone, how could I conceivably be leading the country? This is illogical. I can continue to lead because of the strength of public support and the strength of the Syrian state. Unfortunately, those in the West do not view this reality objectively.

Malbrunot: Mr. President, a number of French journalists have been held in Syria. Do you have any idea of their situation? Are the Syrian authorities holding them? President al-Assad: Do you mean that we are holding them?

Malbrunot: They were taken hostage in the North of Syria; do you have information on their fate? President al-Assad: If they were taken hostage by the terrorists, you will have to ask them. If anyone is arrested by the government for entering the country illegally, they will be taken to court rather than being held in jail. They would face charges according to Syrian law and this would be public knowledge.

Malbrunot: Are you looking to cooperate with France on security issues? This was an area that went well in the past.

President al-Assad: Any cooperation, be it security, military or economic requires political consensus. You cannot maintain security cooperation with any country when there is a conflict of interests.

Malbrunot: When your father passed away, you visited France and were received by President Chirac. Everyone viewed you as a youthful and promising president and a successful ophthalmologist. Today, since the crisis, this image has changed. To what extent have you as a person changed?

President al-Assad: The more imperative question is: has the nature of this person changed? The media can manipulate a person’s image at a whim, yet my reality remains the same. I belong to the Syrian people; I defend their interests and independence and will not succumb to external pressure. I cooperate with others in a way that promotes my country’s interests. This is what was never properly understood; they assumed that they could easily influence a young president, that if I had studied in the West I would lose my original culture. This is such a naïve and shallow attitude. I have not changed; they are the ones who wished to identify me differently at the beginning. They need to accept the image of a Syrian president who embraces his country’s independence.

Malbrunot: Has France become an enemy of Syria?

President al-Assad: All those who support the terrorists financially or militarily are enemies of the Syrian people. Anyone who facilitates the killing of a Syrian soldier, or works against the interests of Syria and her people is an enemy of Syria. I am not referring to the French people since I believe that the French government is working against the interests and will of its people. There is a difference between the concepts of adverse government and adverse nation. The French people are not our enemy but the policy of their government is one that is adverse to the Syrian people.

Malbrunot: Is the French government an enemy of Syria?

President al-Assad: The more adverse the policies of the French government are to the Syrian people, the more the government is an enemy to the Syrian people. The current policies, that we mentioned earlier, adopted by the French leadership are hostile towards Syria. This hostility can only end when the French government readdresses its policies.

Le président al-Assad : La stabilité dans la région dépend de la situation en Syrie

02 Sept 2013

Damas / Le président, Bachar al-Assad, a accordé une interview au journal français le Figaro, au cours de laquelle il a affirmé que la stabilité dans la région dépend de la situation en Syrie.

Voici l’interview intégrale :

– Le Figaro : Les américains et les français vous ont accusé d’avoir déclenché une attaque à l’arme chimique le 21 août dans la région de Ghouta ce qui a fait des centaines de morts. Pouvez-vous nous fournir une preuve que votre armée n’a pas commis cette attaque.

M. Prés : premièrement, quiconque accuse doit donner la preuve. Nous les avons défiés d’avancer une seule preuve ; ils en ont été incapables. Nous les avons défiés de donner une seule preuve à leurs peuples. Puisque les politiques extérieures se décident au nom des peuples et de leurs intérêts. Mais, ils n’ont pas pu le faire.

Deuxièmement, parlons de la logique de cette accusation, si elle est raisonnable ou pas. A présent, je vous pose la question suivante : nous combattons depuis deux ans, et je peux dire que notre situation sur le terrain est aujourd’hui bien meilleure qu’elle ne l’était l’année dernière par exemple. Comment une armée, dans n’importe quel Etat, peut-elle utiliser des armes de destruction massives, au moment même où elle réalise un progrès moyennant des armes conventionnelles ? Soyons très précis : Je ne dis nullement que l’armée syrienne possède ou non de telles armes. C’est une question qu’on ne discute pas. Mais supposons que cette armée souhaite utiliser des armes de destruction massive, si elle en possède; est-il possible qu’elle le fasse dans une zone où elle se trouve elle-même ?!! Où en est la logique ?

En plus, est-il possible d’utiliser des armes de destruction massive dans la banlieue de la capitale sans tuer des dizaines de milliers de personnes, car ces matières se transportent par le vent ?

– Des éléments de l’armée syrienne ont-ils été atteints par de telles armes ?

M. Prés : Oui dans la région d’al Baharieh dans la banlieue de Damas. Le comité d’enquête a rencontré les soldats hospitalisés.

– Certains disent que l’armée a sans doute réalisé certains progrès. Mais vous vouliez aussi, en fin de compte, en finir définitivement avec cette opposition, qui progresse dans d’autres endroits.

M. Prés : Encore une fois, les zones dont on parle sont des zones peuplées. Y utiliser des armes de destruction massive signifie des dizaines de milliers de morts. Toutes les accusations se fondent sur les allégations des terroristes et sur des images vidéo arbitraires diffusées sur internet.

– Les américains disent avoir capté un entretien téléphonique entre un de vos responsables et un élément de l’armée, lui donnant l’ordre d’utiliser ces armes…

M. Prés : si les américains, les français ou les britanniques disposaient d’une seule preuve, ils l’auraient annoncée dès le premier jour. Nous ne discutons pas des rumeurs, ni des allégations. Nous ne discutons que les faits. Si ce qu’ils disent est vrai, qu’ils en donnent la preuve.

– Serait-il possible que certains responsables, ou certains éléments de l’armée syrienne, aient pris cette décision sans votre aval.

M. Prés : Encore une fois… j’affirme que nous n’avons jamais dit posséder de telles armes. Votre question insinue des choses que je n’ai pas dites, et que nous n’avons ni confirmées ni niées en tant qu’Etat… mais normalement, dans les pays qui possèdent une telle arme, la décision est centrale.

De toute manière, vous évoquez une question que nous ne discutons avec personne en tant qu’Etat, car c’est une question purement militaire.

– Mais Jihad MAKDISSI l’a bien dit ?

M. Prés : Non… à l’époque, Jihad a dit : « si nous possédons une telle arme, nous ne l’utiliserons pas ». Le faite de la posséder ou non est une affaire purement syrienne et ne concerne que nous.

– Le président Obama a reporté les frappes militaires sur votre pays. Comment expliquez-vous cette décision ?

M. Prés : Certains estiment que le président Obama a fait preuve de faiblesse en temporisant l’agression, ou en la reportant pour quelques jours ou quelques semaines… Certains ont vu en lui le chef fort d’une grande puissance, parce ce qu’il a menacé de déclencher la guerre contre la Syrie. Quant à nous, nous estimons que l’homme fort est celui qui empêche la guerre, et non celui qui l’enflamme…

L’homme puissant est celui qui reconnait ses erreurs. Si Obama était fort, il aurait dit publiquement : « Nous ne disposons pas de preuves sur l’usage de l’arme chimique par l’Etat syrien ». Il aurait dit publiquement: « La seule voie est celle des enquêtes onusiennes. Par conséquent, revenons tous au conseil de sécurité ». Mais à mon avis, il était faible parce qu’il a subi les pressions intérieures et a menacé de déclencher la guerre. C’est notre opinion. Je vous ai dit que par la force des choses le fort est celui qui empêche la guerre et non celui qui la déclenche et l’attise.

– Que diriez-vous aux membres du Congrès américain qui doivent voter pour ou contre cette frappe ?

M. Prés : Quiconque souhaite prendre cette décision doit, avant de voter, se poser la question évidente suivante : les guerres qu’ont-elles apportées aux Etats-Unis ou même à l’Europe ? Le monde qu’a-t-il gagné de la guerre contre la Libye ? Qu’a-t-il gagné du support apporté au terrorisme en Libye ? Qu’a-t-il gagné de la guerre en Irak et ailleurs ? Que gagnera-t-il du renforcement du terrorisme en Syrie ?

La tache de tout membre du congrès consiste à servir l’intérêt de son pays. Avant de voter, il doit agir en fonction de l’intérêt de son pays… Quel serait l’intérêt des États-Unis dans la croissance de la perturbation et de l’extrémisme au Moyen Orient ? Quel serait leur intérêt à poursuivre ce que Georges Bush avait commencé, à savoir répandre les guerres dans le monde…

S’ils raisonnent logiquement et en fonction de l’intérêt de leur propre pays, ils ne verront aucun intérêt dans de telles guerres. Mais vous savez que, dans beaucoup de cas, leurs positions politiques n’émanent pas toujours du bon sens.


– Comment entendez-vous riposter à cette attaque, au cas où elle aura lieu ?

M. Prés : Aujourd’hui, vous parlez d’un tonneau de poudre qui est le Moyen Orient.

Le feu s’approche énormément de ce tonneau. Il ne s’agit pas seulement de la riposte syrienne, mais bien de ce qui pourrait se produire après la première frappe…

Celui qui élabore aujourd’hui le plan de la guerre peut vous répondre en ce qui concerne le premier pas seulement, c’est-à-dire sur ce qu’il va faire lui-même. Mais après… Personne ne peut savoir ce qui se passera. Tout le monde perdra le contrôle lorsque le baril de poudre explosera… Personne ne dispose d’une réponse sur ce qui se passera en fin de compte. Ce qui est certain c’est qu’il y aura partout le chao, la guerre, l’extrémisme et ses répercussions.

– Le danger d’une guerre régionale se pose t-il ?

M. Prés : Bien sûr. Ce risque vient même au premier plan. La question ne relève pas seulement de la Syrie, mais de toute une région intégrée, étroitement liée sur le plan social, politique et militaire. Il est dons normal que les défis soient régionaux et non seulement syriens.

– Par exemple, Israël serait-il un de vos objectifs ?

M. Prés : Vous ne vous attendez quand même pas que je révèle quelle sera notre riposte ?!! Il n’est pas logique d’annoncer notre plan, mais comme je viens de le dire, puisque les acteurs sont nombreux, parler d’un seul acteur minimise l’importance de ce qui se produira.

– Que diriez-vous à la Jordanie où des hommes armés se sont entrainés. Au cas où les extrémistes réalisent une avancée, quel sera, à votre avis, le danger qui menace la Jordanie ?

M. Prés : Notre politique consiste à ne pas exporter nos problèmes aux pays voisins. Nous traitions donc avec des milliers de terroristes déjà venus de la Jordanie, et nous les frappions à l’intérieur même de la Syrie … La Jordanie, par ailleurs, a déjà annoncé qu’elle ne servira de base à aucune opération militaire contre la Syrie.

Mais si nous ne parvenons pas à frapper le terrorisme en Syrie, il passera tout naturellement dans d’autres pays. L’extrémisme et le chao se répandront davantage.

– Vous mettez donc en garde la Jordanie et la Turquie ?

M. Prés : Nous l’avons dit à plusieurs reprises, et nous leur avons envoyé des messages directs et indirects. Je pense que la Jordanie en est consciente, malgré les pressions qui s’y exercent pour qu’elle devienne un lieu de passage pour le terrorisme. Quant à Erdogan, je ne pense pas du tout qu’il est conscient de ce qu’il fait…

L’important aujourd’hui pour la Syrie est de frapper le terrorisme sur son territoire.

– Quelle sera la réaction de vos alliés… Hezbollah et l’Iran, au cas où une attaque est perpétrée contre la Syrie ? comptez-vous le cas échéant sur leur soutien ?

M. Prés : Je ne veux pas parler à leur place. Cependant, leurs déclarations étaient claires. Puisque nous avons dit que la question était régionale, personne ne saurait dissocier les intérêts de la Syrie de ceux de l’Iran ; ni les intérêts de la Syrie, de l’Iran et du Hezbollah de ceux d’autres pays qui nous soutiennent.

Aujourd’hui la stabilité de la région dépend de la situation en Syrie. La Russie en est consciente, aussi ne défend-elle pas le président ni l’Etat syrien mais bien la stabilité dans la région… car cela aura aussi des effets sur la Russie. Voir les choses sou l’angle d’une coalition entre la Syrie et l’Iran serait superficiel et limité.La question en est beaucoup plus grande.

– Les Russes vous ont-ils rassuré qu’ils maintiennent des contacts avec les américains pour atténuer la frappe ?

M. Prés : Je ne pense pas qu’on fait confiance aux américains. Aucun Etat au monde ne peut garantir à quiconque que les américains engageront ou non une action contre tel ou tel pays. Aussi nous ne cherchons pas de telles rassurances…Les américains disent une chose le matin, et le contredisent complètement le soir … Tant que les Etats-Unis ne suivent pas et n’écoutent pas les Nations Unies, nous ne devons pas être rassurés.

– Comment peut-on arrêter la guerre et la crise qui dure depuis deux ans et demi en Syrie ? vous avez proposé un gouvernement d’union nationale, la communauté internationale a proposé Genève2… Comment peut-on arrêter le bain de sang ?

M. Prés : Lorsque la crise est à ces débuts et que vous parlez de solution, c’est totalement différent que lorsque vous parlez de solution à l’heure actuelle… J’ai dit dès le début que la solution devait avoir lieu par le dialogue… Le dialogue entraine des solutions et engendre des idées qui s’appliqueront à travers des mesures politiques.

Aujourd’hui la situation est différente. Nous combattons des terroristes. 80 – 90 % de ceux que nous combattons appartiennent à al Qaeda. Ceux là ne s’intéressent pas à la réforme, ni à la politique, ni aux lois. Ceux là, le seul moyen de leur faire face est de les liquider. C’est alors que nous pourrions parler de mesures politiques. Pour répondre donc à votre question, la solution aujourd’hui consiste à arrêter de faire venir les terroristes en Syrie, de leur fournir des armes, et de leur apporter un soutien financier et autre…..

– Qui leur apporte ce soutien ?

M. Prés : L’Arabie Saoudite en premier lieu, la Turquie, la Jordanie (à travers l’infiltration des personnes armées), la France, le Royaume Uni et les Etats-Unis.

– Avez-vous des preuves que la France a livré des armes aux terroristes ?

M. Prés : Les positions politiques de la France, sa provocation qui met en exécution les politiques d’autres pays comme le Qatar et autres, en est la preuve pour nous.

– Etes-vous prêt, M. le président, à inviter les responsables de l’opposition à venir en Syrie, à se réunir avec eux, à leur présenter des garanties sécuritaires, et à leur dire asseyons- nous ensemble pour trouver une solution ?

M. Prés : En janvier dernier, nous avons lancé une initiative qui comprenait tout ce que vous venez de dire, et même plus. Cependant, l’opposition dont vous parlez a été fabriquée à l’étranger. Elle est made in France, Qatar… mais certainement pas made in Syria. Elle suit donc forcement les ordres de ceux qui l’ont fabriquée. Il n’était pas permis aux membres de cette opposition de répondre favorablement à cet appel, ni donc aux solutions politiques. Par ailleurs, ils ne disposent d’aucune base populaire. Malgré tout, nous les avons invités mais ils n’ont pas répondu à cette invitation.

– Mais certains n’ont pas répondu parce qu’ils craignaient pour leurs vies. Ils craignent qu’ils ne soient emprisonnés comme ce fut le cas avec Abdelaziz Al Khayer. Pouvez-vous leur donner des garanties ?

M. Prés : Nous leur avons donné ses garanties, et moi-même j’ai évoqué ces points politiques y compris des garanties sécuritaires à toute personne qui vient en Syrie pour le dialogue. Mais ils ne sont pas venus, ou on ne leur a pas permis de venir. Dire qu’ils craignent être tués ou arrêtés, nous n’avons ni tué ni arrêté personne de l’opposition. Ils se trouvent en Syrie, les amis et les collègues d Abdelaziz Al Khayer … Vous pouvez les rencontrer ici même, en Syrie. Pourquoi agresser ou arrêter quelqu’un et laisser les autres ?! Où en est la logique ? Cela est insensé.

– Comment expliquez-vous la position de la France aujourd’hui à votre égard ? Vous êtes venu plusieurs fois en France…………………

M. Prés : Ce n’était pas une relation d’amitié… C’était une tentative de la part de la France de revirer (changer l’orientation de) la politique syrienne, et ce à la demande des Etats-Unis. C’était une chose tout à fait claire pour nous. Même le virement positif vis à vis de la Syrie en 2008, s’est fait sous l’influence du Qatar… pour être clair, la politique de la France vis-à-vis de la Syrie dépendait totalement du Qatar et des Etats-Unis.

– Les parlementaires français se réuniront mercredi. Aujourd’hui, il y a un grand débat en France. Certains pensent que Hollande est allé trop loin dans cette affaire. Quel discours adressez-vous aujourd’hui aux parlementaires français avant qu’ils se réunissent et votent ?

M. Prés : Il y a quelques jours, le Ministre français des affaires étrangères aurait déclaré : la participation de la France attend le congrès américain. Il n’a pas dit qu’il attendait la décision du parlement français. Je vous demande donc de qui dépend le Gouvernement français dans ses prises de décisions, du parlement français ou du congrès ?!!


Depuis 2003, suite à l’invasion de l’Irak, la France a décidé de renoncer à son indépendance et est devenue la subalterne de la politique américaine. C’était vrai pour Chirac après la guerre, mais aussi pour Sarkozy, et aujourd’hui pour Hollande.

La question est de savoir si la réunion du parlement français signifiera que les français retrouveront l’indépendance de la décision de la France. Nous souhaitons que la réponse soit positive. Je dirais à ce moment-là aux parlementaires français : que chacun décide en fonction de l’intérêt de la France. Les représentants du peuple français soutiendront-ils l’extrémisme et le terrorisme ? Se mettront-ils du côté de ceux qui ont perpétré les attaques du 11 septembre à New York, ou l’attentat du métro en Espagne ? Les députés du peuple français se mettront-ils du côté de ceux qui ont tué les innocents en France ??? Comment pourront-ils s’opposer à des gens comme Mohammad Marah en France, et les soutenir en Syrie !!! Comment la France peut-elle combattre le terrorisme au Mali et le renforcer en Syrie ? La France deviendra-t-elle un exemple de la politique des deux poids deux mesures promues par les Etats-Unis ? !!

Comment les parlementaires français pourront-ils convaincre leurs concitoyens que la France est un état laïc, et en même temps appuyer ailleurs l’extrémisme et le confessionnalisme ; un Etat qui appelle à la démocratie mais dont l’allier principal c’est des Etats qui appartiennent au moyen âge comme l’Arabie Saoudite. Je dis aux parlementaires français : revenez aux principes de la révolution française dont le monde entier s’en est orgueilli : liberté, égalité, fraternité.

– Si la France intervient militairement, les intérêts nationaux de la France seront-ils affectés en Syrie ou dans la région ?

M. Prés : Cela dépend des répercussions de la guerre. Mais la France perdra certainement ses intérêts. Il y a une sorte de mépris vis-à-vis la politique de la France, cela est devenu clair et se reflète directement sur les intérêts. Il aura des répercussions, négatives bien entendu, sur les intérêts de la France. Surtout que des pays importants dans la région commencent à s’orienter vers l’Est, et non plus vers l’Europe comme auparavant. Les alternatives sont disponibles, ainsi que le respect mutuel entre nous et ces pays.

– Donc vous appelez à la raison et à la sagesse.

M. Prés : A la raison et à la morale.

– Entendez-vous présenter votre candidature l’année prochaine aux élections présidentielles.

M. Prés : Ca dépend, à ce moment là de la volonté du peuple syrien. Si je sens que le peuple le souhaite, je n’hésiterai pas à le faire, bien au contraire. A présent, nous n’avons pas de statistiques à ce sujet, mais nous avons des indices. L’indice principal c’est que lorsque vous combattez des terroristes qui viennent de plus de 80 pays et qui sont appuyés par l’Occident et par certains Etats Arabes, et que le peuple ne veut pas de vous, vous ne pouvez pas continuer. Puisque la Syrie a résisté pendant 2 ans et demi, c’est là un indice important quant à l’existence d’un soutien populaire.

– Dans cette crise, M. le Président, jusqu’où vous êtes prêt à combattre ?

M. Prés : Ce n’est pas nous qui a choisi de combattre. Nous avons deux choix : se battre et défendre notre pays contre le terrorisme, ou capituler. L’histoire de notre région ne nous indique pas que nous avons capitulé auparavant. Cette région a toujours vécu des guerres. Elle n’a jamais capitulé, et ne capitulera jamais.

– Donc vous allez vous battre jusqu’à sacrifier votre vie pour la Syrie ?

M. Prés : Lorsqu’il s’agit d’une question patriotique tout le monde se bat, et tout le monde se sacrifie pour sa patrie…. Aucune différence entre président et citoyen… ce n’est pas une affaire personnelle. En quoi c’est utile si vous vous restez en vie alors que votre patrie est mourante ?

– Est-ce que vous assumez, M. le président ; toutes les erreurs commises et tout ce qu’a fait votre armée et les forces de sécurité ? pensez-vous qu’il y a eu des erreurs commises ?

M. Prés : Tout être humain risque de se tromper. Si vous ne vous trompez pas c’est que soit vous n’êtes pas humain, soit vous ne travaillez pas. Moi, je suis humain et je travaille… Mais lorsque vous voulez évaluez une erreur quelconque, vous devez prendre du recul. L’évaluation doit se faire après et non pendant la production de l’événement. Il faut bien attendre les conséquences de l’action. A présent, nous sommes au cœur de la bataille. Lorsqu’elle prendra fin, nous seront en mesure d’évaluer les résultats et nous dirons qu’on avait raison ici, ou qu’on s’est trompé là.

– Etes-vous sûr que vous allez gagner la bataille ?

M. Prés : L’histoire de notre région nous dit que lorsque les peuples se défendent, ils vaincront. Cette guerre n’est pas celle du président, ni celle de l’Etat. C’est la guerre de toute la patrie, et nous remporterons la victoire.

– Malgré tout, votre armée a perdu certaines régions au Nord, à l’Est, au Sud… pensez-vous que vous allez récupérer ces zones militaires ?

M. Prés. : Notre problème n’est pas d’avoir la terre sous notre contrôle ou sous celui des groupes armés. Il n’y a pas un endroit où l’armée a voulu entrer sans pouvoir y pénétrer. Le vrai problème réside dans la poursuite du pompage des terroristes à travers les frontières. Il réside aussi dans le changement que les terroristes ont pu introduire sur le plan social dans les zones où ils ont pénétré.

– Votre ancien ami Moratinos m’a dit il y a quelques jours : Qu’est ce qui se passe dans la tête de Bachar el-Assad ? Comment peut-il commettre de tels actes de violence dans son propre pays ?

M. Prés : Il faut plutôt se poser la question de savoir comment la France a permis de tuer des terroristes qui ont terrorisé les citoyens français chez eux ? Comment a-t-on fait face au désordre au Royaume Uni l’année dernière ? Pourquoi l’armée américaine est-elle descendue à Los Angeles dans les années 90 ? Pourquoi est-il permis aux autres pays de lutter contre le terrorisme, alors que cela n’est permis en Syrie ? Pourquoi n’est-il pas permis que Mohamad Marah se trouve en France pour tuer, alors qu’il est permis aux terroristes de se trouver en Syrie pour tuer ?

– Depuis le début de la crise, quels changements y-a-t-il eu sur votre quotidien en tant que dirigeant de l’Etat ? Après 2 ans et demi de la crise, certains disent que Bachar el-Assad dirige seul le pays.

M. Prés : C’est bien ce que je vous ai répondu tout à l’heure. Si l’Occident était contre moi, mon peuple aussi, et que j’étais seul, comment pourrai-je alors être en mesure de diriger le pays ? C’est illogique. Je continue grâce à l’appui du peuple et à la puissance de l’Etat. Malheureusement, lorsqu’on nous regarde de l’occident, on ne voit pas les choses d’une manière réaliste.

– Plusieurs journalistes français sont retenus en Syrie. Avez-vous de leurs nouvelles ? Est-ce le pouvoir qui les détient ?

M. Prés : Détenus chez nous ?

– Ils ont été pris en otages au Nord.

M. Prés : S’ils sont des otages chez les terroristes, c’est aux terroristes qu’il faut demander de leurs nouvelles. Si par contre l’Etat arrête quiconque pour être entré dans le pays de manière irrégulière, il sera traduit en justice. Il ne sera pas gardé en prison. Il sera jugé selon les lois syriennes, et tout le monde le saura.

– Souhaitez-vous élaborer une collaboration sécuritaire avec la France, ce qui se produisait d’ailleurs dans le passé.

M. Prés : Toute sorte de coopération, qu’elle soit sécuritaire, militaire ou même économique a besoin d’un accord politique. Nous ne pouvons pas avoir une collaboration sécuritaire avec n’importe quel Etat quand les intérêts politiques sont en contradiction.

– Lorsque votre père est décédé et que vous êtes allé en France, le président Chirac vous a reçu……….votre image a complètement changé….

M. Prés : La question est de savoir plutôt si la réalité de la personne a changée. L’image est modifiée par les médias à leur manière. Ma réalité n’a pas changé. Je suis quelqu’un qui appartient au peuple syrien. Je défends ses intérêts. Je suis indépendant, non soumis aux pressions extérieures. Je coopère avec les autres de manière à sauvegarder les intérêts de mon pays.

Ils ont mal compris ces choses là. Ils ont pensé qu’un jeune président c’est quelqu’un à qui on peut dicter ce qu’il doit faire et ce qu’il ne doit pas faire. Ils ont pensé que si j’avais fait mes études en Occident, ça veut dire que j’ai perdu ma culture authentique… C’est une manière naïve et superficielle de voir les choses. Je n’ai pas changé. Mais dès le début ils m’ont vu autrement. Ils doivent accepter l’image du syrien attaché à l’indépendance de son pays.

– La France est-elle devenue un pays ennemi de la Syrie ?

M. Prés : Quiconque contribue au renforcement financier et militaire des terroristes est l’ennemi du peuple syrien. Quiconque contribue à tuer un soldat arabe syrien est l’ennemi de la Syrie. Quiconque œuvre contre les intérêts de la Syrie et de ses citoyens est un ennemi.

Je ne parle pas du peuple, car je vois que le gouvernement français va à l’encontre de l’intérêt et de la volonté de son peuple. Il faut faire la distinction entre peuple ennemi et Etat ennemi. Le peuple français n’est pas un ennemi, mais la politique de son Etat est hostile au peuple syrien.

– Donc l’Etat français est-il aujourd’hui un ennemi de la Syrie ?

M. Prés : Dans la mesure où la politique de l’Etat français est hostile au peuple syrien, cet Etat sera son ennemi. Cette hostilité prendra fin lorsque l’Etat français changera de politique.

President al-Assad: Syria will never become a western puppet state, we will fight terrorism and freely build relationships that best serve the interests of the Syrians

#President_al_Assad: Syria will never become a western puppet state, we will fight terrorism and freely build relationships that best serve the interests of the #Syrians
President Bashar al-Assad stressed that Syria is a sovereign country that will fight terrorism and will freely build relationships with countries in a way that best serves the interests of the Syrian people.

In an interview with the Russian newspaper of Izvestia, President al-Assad stressed that “the majority of those we are fighting are Takfiris, who adopt the al-Qaeda doctrine, in addition to a small number of outlaws.”

On the alleged use of chemical weapons, President al-Assad said that the statements by the US administration, the West and other countries were made with disdain and blatant disrespect of their own public opinion, adding that “there isn’t a body in the world, let alone a superpower, that makes an accusation and then goes about collecting evidence to prove its point.”

His Excellency stressed that these accusations are completely politicised and come on the back of the advances made by the Syrian Army against the terrorists.

Here is the full content of the interview:

Q1 Interviewer: Mr President, the most pressing question today is the current situation in Syria. What parts of the country remain under the rebels’ control?

President al-Assad: From our perspective, it’s not a matter of labelling areas as controlled by terrorists or by the government; we are not dealing with a conventional occupation to allow us to contextualise it in this manner. We are fighting terrorists infiltrating particular regions, towns or peripheral city areas. They wreak havoc, vandalise, destroy infrastructure and kill innocent civilians simply because they denounce them. The army mobilises into these areas with the security forces and law enforcement agencies to eradicate the terrorists, those who survive relocate to other areas. Therefore, the essence of our action is striking terrorism.

Our challenge, which has protracted the situation, is the influx of large amounts of terrorists from other countries – estimated in the tens of thousands at the very least. As long as they continue to receive financial and military aid, we will continue to strike them. I can confirm that there has not been any instance where the Syrian Army has planned to enter a particular location and has not succeeded in eliminating the terrorists within it.

The majority of those we are fighting are Takfiris, who adopt the al-Qaeda doctrine, in addition to a small number of outlaws

The majority of those we are fighting are Takfiris, who adopt the al-Qaeda doctrine, in addition to a small number of outlaws, so as I said this not about who controls more areas of land. Wherever terrorism strikes, we shall strike back.

Q2 Interviewer: Yet, Western mainstream media claim that the terrorists control 40% to 70% of Syrian territory; what is the reality?

President al-Assad: There isn’t an army in the world that can be present with its armament in every corner of any given country. The terrorists exploit this, and violate areas where the army is not present. They escape from one area to another, and we continue to eradicate them from these areas with great success. Therefore, I reiterate, the issue is not the size of the territories they infiltrate but the large influx of terrorists coming from abroad.

The more significant criterion to evaluate success is – has the Syrian Army been able to enter any area infiltrated by terrorists and defeat them? Most certainly the answer is yes; the army has always succeeded in this and continues to do so. However, this takes time because these types of wars do not end suddenly, they protract for prolonged periods and as such carry a heavy price. Even when we have eradicated all the terrorists, we will have paid a hefty price.

Q3 Interviewer: Mr President, you have spoken of Islamist Takfiri extremists’ fighters who have entered Syria. Are they fragmented groups who fight sporadically? Or do they belong to a coherent major force that seeks to destroy the security and stability in Syria and the whole Middle East?

President al-Assad: They have both traits. They are similar in that they all share the same extremist Takfiri doctrine of certain individuals such as Zawahiri; they also have similar or identical financial backing and military support. They differ on the ground in that they are incoherent and scattered with each group adhering to a separate leader and pursuing different agendas. Of course it is well known that countries, such as Saudi Arabia, who hold the purse strings can shape and manipulate them to suit their own interests.

Ideologically, these countries mobilize them through direct or indirect means as extremist tools. If they declare that Muslims must pursue Jihad in Syria, thousands of fighters will respond. Financially, those who finance and arm such groups can instruct them to carry out acts of terrorism and spread anarchy. The influence over them is synergised when a country such as Saudi Arabia directs them through both the Wahhabi ideology and their financial means.


Q4 Interviewer: The Syrian government claims a strong link between Israel and the terrorists. How can you explain this? It is commonly perceived that the extremist Islamists loathe Israel and become hysterical upon hearing its name.

President al-Assad: If this was the case, why is it then that when we strike the terrorists at the frontier, Israel strikes at our forces to alleviate the pressure off of them? Why, when we blockade them into an area does Israel let them through their barricades so they can come round and re-attack from another direction? Why has Israel carried out direct strikes against the Syrian Army on more than one occasion in recent months? So clearly this perception is inaccurate. It is Israel who has publicaly declared its cooperation with these terrorists and treated them in Israeli hospitals.

If these terrorist groups were indeed hostile to Israel and hysterical even on the mention of the word as you mention, why have they fought the Soviet Union, Syria and Egypt, whilst never carrying out a single strike against Israel? Who originally created these terrorist groups? These groups were initially created in the early 80’s by the United States and the West, with Saudi funding, to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. So logically speaking, how could such groups manufactured by the US and the West ever strike Israel!

Q5 Interviewer: Mr. President, this interview will be translated into several international languages, and shall be read by world leaders, some who may currently be working against you. What would you like to say to them?

President al-Assad: Today there are many Western politicians, but very few statesmen. Some of these politicians do not read history or even learn from it, whilst others do not even remember recent events. Have these politicians learned any lessons from the past 50 years at least? Have they not realized that since the Vietnam War, all the wars their predecessors have waged have failed? Have they not learned that they have gained nothing from these wars but the destruction of the countries they fought, which has had a destabilizing effect on the Middle East and other parts of the world? Have they not comprehended that all of these wars have not made people in the region appreciate them or believe in their policies?

From another perspective, these politicians should know that terrorism is not a winning card you play when it suits you and keep it in your pocket when it doesn’t. Terrorism is like a scorpion; it can unexpectedly sting you at any time. Therefore, you cannot support terrorism in Syria whilst fighting it in Mali; you cannot support terrorism in Chechnya and fight it in Afghanistan.

To be very precise, I am referring to the West and not all world leaders, if these western leaders are looking to achieve their interests, they need to listen to their own constituents and to the people in this region rather than seeking to install ‘puppet’ leaders, in the hope that they would be able to deliver their objectives. In doing so, western policy may become more realistic in the region.

Syria will never become a Western ‘puppet’ state

Our message to the world is straightforward: Syria will never become a Western ‘puppet’ state. We are an independent country; we will fight terrorism and we will freely build relationships with countries in a way that best serves the interests of the Syrian people.

Q6 Interviewer: On Wednesday, the rebels accused the Syrian government of using chemical weapons; some Western leaders adopted these accusations. What is your response to this? Will you allow the UN inspectors access to the site to investigate the incident?

President al-Assad: The statements by the American administration, the West and other countries were made with disdain and blatant disrespect of their own public opinion; there isn’t a body in the world, let alone a superpower, that makes an accusation and then goes about collecting evidence to prove its point. The American administration made the accusation on Wednesday and two days later announced that they would start to collect the evidence – what evidence is it going to gather from afar?!

CW use accusations are completely politicized and come on the back of the advances made by the Syrian Army against the terrorists

They claim that the area in question is under the control of the rebels and that the Syrian Army used chemical weapons. In fact, the area is in contiguity with the Syrian Army positions, so how is it possible that any country would use chemical weapons, or any weapons of mass destruction, in an area where its own forces are located; this is preposterous! These accusations are completely politicized and come on the back of the advances made by the Syrian Army against the terrorists.

As for the UN Commission, we were the first to request a UN investigation when terrorists launched rockets that carried toxic gas in the outskirts of Aleppo. Several months before the attack, American and Western statements were already preparing public opinion of the potential use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government. This raised our suspicion that they were aware of the terrorists’ intentions to use these weapons in order to blame the Syrian government. After liaising with Russia, we decided to request a commission to investigate the incident. Whereas we requested an investigation based on the facts on the ground, not on rumours or allegations; the US, France and the UK have tried to exploit the incident to investigate allegations rather than happenings.

During the last few weeks, we have worked with the Commission and set the guidelines for cooperation. First of these, is that our national sovereignty is a red line and as such the Commission will directly liaise with us during the process. Second, the issue is not only how the investigation will be conducted but also how the results will be interpreted. We are all aware that instead of being interpreted in an objective manner, these results could easily be interpreted according to the requirements and agendas of certain major countries. Certainly, we expect Russia to block any interpretation that aims to serve American and western policies. What is most important is that we differentiate between western accusations that are based on allegations and hearsay and our request for an investigation based on concrete evidence and facts.

Q7 Interviewer: Recent statements by the American administration and other Western governments have stated that the US has not ruled out military intervention in Syria. In light of this, is it looking more likely that the US would behave in the same way it did in Iraq, in other words look for a pretext for military intervention?

President al-Assad: This is not the first time that the possibility of military intervention has been raised. From the outset, the US, along with France and Britain, has striven for military intervention in Syria. Unfortunately for them, events took a different course with the balance shifting against their interests in the Security Council despite their numerous attempts to haggle with Russia and China, but to no avail. The negative outcomes that emerged in Libya and Egypt were also not in their favor.

All of this made it impossible for them to convince their constituents and the world that they were following sound or successful policies.

The situation in Libya also differs to that of Egypt and Tunisia, and Syria as I have said is very different from all these. Each country has a unique situation and applying the same scenario across the board is no longer a plausible option. No doubt they can wage wars, but they cannot predict where they will spread or how they will end. This has led them to realize that all their crafted scenarios have now spiraled out of their control.

It is now crystal clear to everybody that what is happening in Syria is not a popular revolution pushing for political reform, but targeted terrorism aimed at destroying the Syrian state. What will they say to their people when pushing for military intervention: we are intervening in Syria to support terrorism against the state?!

Interviewer: What will America face should it decide on military intervention or on waging a war on Syria?

Global powers can wage wars, but can they win them?

President al-Assad: What it has been confronted with in every war since Vietnam… failure. America has waged many wars, but has never been able to achieve its political objectives from any of them. It will also not be able to convince the American people of the benefits of this war, nor will it be able to convince the people in this region of their policies and plans. Global powers can wage wars, but can they win them?

Q8: Interviewer: Mr. President, how is your relationship with President Vladimir Putin? Do you speak on the phone? If so, what do you discuss?

President al-Assad: I have a strong relationship with President Putin, which spans back many years even before the crisis. We contact each other from time to time, although the complexity of events in Syria cannot be discussed on the phone. Our relationship is facilitated through Russian and Syrian officials who exchange visits, the majority of which are conducted away from the glare of the media.

current priorities are to work towards easing the violence in Syria

Q9 Interviewer: Mr. President, are you planning to visit Russia or invite President Putin to visit Syria?

President al-Assad: It is possible of course; however the current priorities are to work towards easing the violence in Syria, there are casualties on a daily basis. When circumstances improve, a visit will be necessary; for now, our officials are managing this relationship well.

Q10: Interviewer: Mr. President, Russia is opposing the US and #EU policies, especially with regards to Syria, what would happen were Russia to make a compromise now? Is such a scenario possible?

President al-Assad: #Russian-#American relations should not be viewed through the context of the Syrian crisis alone; it should be viewed in a broader and more comprehensive manner. The US presumed that with the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia was perpetually destroyed. After President Putin took office in the late 90s, Russia began to gradually recover and regain its international position; hence the Cold War began again, but in a different and subtler manner.

The US persisted on many fronts: striving to contain Russian interests in the world, attempting to influence the mentality of Russians closer to the West both in terms of culture and aspiration. It worked diligently to eliminate Russia’s vital and powerful role on many fronts, one of which is Syria.

You may be wondering, like many Russians, why Russia continues to stand by Syria. It is important to explain this reason to the general public: Russia is not defending President Bashar al-Assad or the Syrian government, since the Syrian people should decide their president and the most suitable political system – this is not the issue. Russia is defending the fundamental principles it has embraced for more than a hundred years, the first of which is independence and the policy of non-interference in internal affairs. Russia itself has suffered and continues to suffer from such interference.

Additionally, Russia is defending its legitimate interests in the region. Some superficial analysts narrow these interests to the Port of Tartous, but in reality Russia’s interests are far more significant. Politically speaking, when terrorism strikes Syria, a key country in the region, it would have a direct impact on stability in the Middle East, which would subsequently affect Russia. Unlike many western governments, the Russian leadership fully understands this reality. From a social and cultural perspective, we must not forget the tens of thousands of Syrian-Russian families, which create a social, cultural and humanitarian bridge between our two countries.

If Russia were to seek a compromise, as you stipulated, this would have happened one or two years ago when the picture was blurred, even for some Russian officials. Today, the picture is crystal clear. A Russia that didn’t make a compromise back then, would not do so now.
Q11 Interviewer: Mr. President, are there any negotiations with Russia to supply fuel or military hardware to Syria? With regards to the S-300 defence system contract in particular, have you received it?

contracts signed with Russia are being honored and neither the crisis nor the pressure from the US, European or Gulf countries’ have affected their implementation

President al-Assad: Of course, no country would publicly declare what armaments and weapons it possesses, or the contracts it signs in this respect. This is strictly classified information concerning the Armed Forces. Suffice to say that all contracts signed with Russia are being honored and neither the crisis nor the pressure from the US, European or Gulf countries’ have affected their implementation. Russia continues to supply Syria with what it requires to defend itself and its people.

Q12 Interviewer: Mr President, what form of aid does Syria require from Russia today? Is it financial or perhaps military equipment? For example would Syria request a loan from Russia?

President al-Assad: In the absence of security on the ground, it is impossible to have a functioning and stable economy. So firstly, the support that Russia is providing through agreed military contracts to help Syrians defend themselves will lead to better security, which will in turn help facilitate an economic recovery. Secondly, Russia’s political support for our right of independence and sovereignty has also played a significant role. Many other countries have turned against us politically and translated this policy by cutting economic ties and closing their markets. Russia has done the complete opposite and continues to maintain good trading relations with us, which has helped keep our economy functioning. Therefore in response to your question, Russia’s supportive political stance and its commitment to honor the agreed military contracts without surrendering to American pressure have substantially aided our economy, despite the negative bearings the economic embargo – imposed by others, has had on the lives of the Syrian people.

From a purely economic perspective, there are several agreements between Syria and Russia for various goods and materials. As for a loan from Russia, this should be viewed as beneficial to both parties: for Russia it is an opportunity for its national industries and companies to expand into new markets, for Syria it provides some of the funding necessary to rebuild our infrastructure and stimulate our economy. I reiterate that Russia’s political stance and support have been instrumental in restoring security and providing the basic needs for the Syrian people.

Q13 Interviewer: Mr. President, do these contracts relate to fuel or basic food requirements?

President al-Assad: Syrian citizens are being targeted through their basic food, medical and fuel requirements. The Syrian government is working to ensure these basic needs are available to all Syrians through trade agreements with Russia and other friendly countries.

Q14 Interviewer: Returning to the situation in Syria and the current crisis. We are aware that you successively issue amnesties. Do these amnesties include rebels? And do some of them subsequently change sides to fight with the Armed Forces?

certain groups have switched from fighting against the army to fighting beside it

President al-Assad: Yes, this is in fact the case. Recently, there has been a marked shift, especially since the picture has become clearer to many that what is happening in Syria is sheer terrorism. Many have come back into the mainstream of civil life, surrendering their weapons and benefiting from the amnesties to help them return to their normal lives. Most remarkably, there are certain groups who have switched from fighting against the army to fighting beside it; these people were either misled by what was propagated in the media or were initially militarized under threats from the terrorists. It is for this very reason that from the start of the crisis, the Syrian government has adopted an open door policy to all those who wanted to U-turn on the initial route they took against their country. Despite the fact that many people in Syria were opposed to this policy, it has proven to be effective and has helped alleviate some of the tension from the crisis.

Q15 Interviewer: Mr. President, Syria’s relations with several states are collapsing consecutively, such as Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Who are your true allies, and who are your enemies?

President al-Assad: The countries that support us are well known to everyone: internationally – Russia and China, regionally – Iran. However, we are starting to see a positive shift on the international arena. Certain countries that were strongly against Syria have begun to change their positions; others have started to re-initiate relations with us. Of course, the changes in these countries’ positions do not constitute direct support.

In contrast, there are particular countries that have directly mobilized and buttressed terrorism in Syria. Predominantly Qatar and Turkey in the first two years; Qatar financed while Turkey provided logistical support by training terrorists and streaming them into Syria. Recently, Saudi Arabia has replaced Qatar in the funding role. To be completely clear and transparent, Saudi Arabia has nothing but funding; those who only have money cannot build a civilisation or nurture it. Saudi Arabia implements its agenda depending on how much money it commands.

Turkey is a different case. It is pitiful that a great country such as Turkey, which bears a strategic location and a liberal society, is being manipulated by a meagre amount of dollars through a Gulf state harbouring a regressive mentality. It is of course the Turkish Prime Minister who shoulders responsibility for this situation and not the Turkish people with whom we share a great deal of heritage and traditions.

Q17 Interviewer: Mr. President, what makes Russian-Syrian relations so strong? Is it geopolitical interests? Or that they jointly share a struggle against terrorism?

President al-Assad: There is more than one factor that forges Syrian-Russian relations so strongly. First of which is that Russia has suffered from occupation during World War II and Syria has been occupied more than once. Secondly, since the Soviet era, Russia has been subjected to continuous and repeated attempts of foreign intervention in its internal affairs; this is also the case with Syria.

Thirdly but no less significantly is terrorism. In Syria, we understand well what it means when extremists from Chechnya kill innocent civilians, what it means to hold under siege children and teachers in Beslan or hold innocent people hostage in Moscow’s theater. Equally, the Russian people understand when we in Syria refer to the identical acts of terrorism they have suffered. It is for this reason that the Russian people reject the Western narrative of “good terrorists and bad terrorists.”

In addition to these areas, there are also the Syrian-Russian family ties I mentioned earlier, which would not have developed without common cultural, social and intellectual characteristics, as well as the geopolitical interests we also spoke of. Russia, unlike the Europeans and the West, is well aware of the consequences of destablising Syria and the region and the affect this will have on the inexorable spread of terrorism.

All of these factors collectively shape the political stance of a great country like Russia. Its position is not founded on one or two elements, but rather by a comprehensive historical, cultural and intellectual perspective.

Q18 Interviewer: Mr. President, what will occur in Geneva 2, what are your expectations from this conference?

President al-Assad: The objective of the Geneva conference is to support the political process and facilitate a political solution to the crisis. However, this cannot be accomplished before halting the foreign support to terrorism. We expect that the Geneva conference would start applying pressure on the countries supporting terrorism in Syria, to stop the smuggling of weapons and the streaming of foreign terrorists into the country. When this is achieved, political steps can be easily pursued, most imperative of which is initiating a dialogue between Syrians to discuss the future political system, the constitution, various legislation and others.

Interviewer: Thank you for your sincerity and for such a transparent discussion during this interview.

قال السيد الرئيس بشار الأسد إن رسالة سورية للعالم أنه إذا كان هناك من يحلم بأن سورية ستكون دمية غربية فهذا حلم لن يتحقق مضيفا.. نحن دولة مستقلة سنحارب الإرهاب وسنبني علاقاتنا مع الدول التي نريدها بكل حرية وبما يحقق مصالح الشعب السوري.

وأكد الرئيس الأسد في مقابلة مع صحيفة ازفستيا الروسية أن من نواجههم الآن هم بنسبتهم الكبرى تكفيريون يحملون فكر القاعدة وقلة معهم من الخارجين عن القانون وفي أي مكان يضرب الإرهاب سنقوم بضربه.

وأشار الرئيس الأسد إلى أن من يقول عن التعاون بين الإسرائيليين والإرهابيين هي إسرائيل نفسها حيث أعلنت أكثر من مرة أنها تعالج العشرات منهم في مشافيها.

وأكد الرئيس الأسد أن الاتهامات الموجهة لسورية بموضوع الكيماوي هي مسيسة بالمطلق وتأتي على خلفية التقدم الذي حققه الجيش العربي السوري في مواجهة الإرهابيين.

وأوضح الرئيس الأسد أن موقف روسيا السياسي ودعمها لسورية هو الأساس الذي انعكس وينعكس على جوانب كثيرة في عودة الأمان وتوفير الحاجات الأساسية للمواطن السوري.

وفيما يلي النص الحرفي لمقابلة الرئيس الأسد مع الصحيفة الروسية:

السؤال الأول..

أهم سؤال اليوم ما هو الوضع في سورية وما هي المناطق التي ما زالت تحت سيطرة المتمردين…

السيد الرئيس..

القضية بالنسبة لنا ليست مناطق تحت سيطرة الإرهابيين ومناطق تحت سيطرة الجيش فما نواجهه ليس عدواً يحتل أرضنا لنفكر بهذه الطريقة.

ما نواجهه الآن إرهابيون يدخلون مناطق أو قرى أو أطراف مدن يعيثون فيها فساداً وتخريباً.. يقتلون المدنيين الأبرياء الرافضين لهم ولما يفعلون ويدمرون البنية التحتية… يتحرك الجيش والقوى الأمنية والشرطة لإخراجهم منها والقضاء عليهم.. فينتقل ما تبقى منهم إلى مناطق أخرى وهكذا.. وبالتالي فإن جوهر ما نقوم به هو القضاء على الإرهابيين.. المشكلة التي تواجهنا وهي التي سببت استمرار هذه الأحداث، هي مجيء أعداد كبيرة من الإرهابيين من خارج سورية.. عشرات الآلاف وأكثر.. وإمدادهم بالمال والسلاح مستمر، وضربنا لهم أيضاً مستمر، وأنا أؤكد لك أنه لا يوجد مكان ذهب إليه الجيش إلا وتمكن من دخوله والقضاء على الإرهاب فيه.

من نواجههم الآن هم بنسبتهم الكبرى تكفيريون يحملون فكر القاعدة وقلة معهم من الخارجين عن القانون

من نواجههم الآن هم بنسبتهم الكبرى تكفيريون يحملون فكر القاعدة وقلة معهم من الخارجين عن القانون.. لذلك لا يمكن أن نتحدث عن مناطق تحت سيطرتهم أو تحت سيطرتنا.. في أي مكان يضرب الإرهاب سنقوم بضربه.

السؤال الثاني..

لكن الإعلام الغربي يصور اليوم هؤلاء الإرهابيين المقاتلين بأنهم يسيطرون على 40 بالمئة أو 70 بالمئة من الأراضي السورية… ما حقيقة سيطرة الدولة السورية على أراضيها…

السيد الرئيس..

لا يوجد جيش في العالم وفي أي دولة يتواجد بكامل عدته وعتاده على كامل أراضي الدولة.. والإرهابيون يستغلون هذا الأمر فيحاولون الدخول إلى كل مكان لا يتواجد فيه الجيش، هم يتحركون في اتجاهات مختلفة ونحن نطاردهم من مكان إلى آخر، وكل منطقة كنا ندخل إليها كنا ننظفها تماماً منهم. لذلك أعود وأكرر القضية ليست في المساحات التي يوجد فيها الإرهابيون فهي متبدلة في كل ساعة وكل يوم، القضية بالأعداد الكبيرة التي تأتي من الخارج.

التقييم الحقيقي هو هل استطاع الجيش العربي السوري أن يتقدم ويدخل أي منطقة يدخلها الارهابيون وأن يقضي عليهم… أنا أقول لك نعم وبكل تأكيد وما زال يقوم بذلك.. هذا يستغرق وقتاً أطول لأن هذا النوع من الحروب لا ينتهي فجأة، بل يأخذ وقتاً طويلاً نسبياً وهذا بحد ذاته يجعلنا ندفع ثمناً كبيراً، فحتى عندما نتمكن من القضاء على كل الإرهابيين في سورية سنكون قد دفعنا ثمناً كبيراً جداً.

السعودية توجه التكفيريين بفكرها الوهابي وتدعمهم بالمال

السؤال الثالث..

سيدي الرئيس، أنتم تحدثتم عن مقاتلين إسلاميين متشددين تكفيريين يدخلون إلى سورية.. هل هم مجموعات متفرقة تقاتل هنا وهناك، أم هم جزء من قوة عظمى تحاول أن تنهي الأمن والاستقرار في الشرق الأوسط بما فيه سورية…

السيد الرئيس..

الاثنان معاً بمعنى أن ما يجمعهم هو الفكر ومصادر التمويل.. ففكرهم تكفيري متشدد يتبعون بآرائهم شخصيات محددة كالظواهري مثلاً، ومصادر تمويلهم أيضاً متشابهة ومتطابقة في بعض الأحيان.

ما يفرقهم هو عملهم على الأرض.. فهم مجموعات متفرقة ومشتتة كل مجموعة لها قيادة مستقلة وأوامر مستقلة.. لكن أنت تعلم جيداً أن من يدفع هو من يمسك في النهاية دفة القيادة لهم، بمعنى أنه من السهل توجيههم من الدول الداعمة لهم فكرياً ومالياً كالسعودية مثلاً.

لكن في النهاية حتى وإن كانوا مشتتين متفرقين على الأرض فإن الدول الداعمة لهم فكرياً تستطيع توجيههم عبر رسائل التطرف بشكل مباشر أو غير مباشر، كأن يقولوا لهم مثلاً إن واجب المسلمين التوجه للجهاد في سورية فيتوجه الآلاف للقتال هنا.

ومن يدفع الأموال أيضاً يمكن أن يوجههم كما يشاء، يدفع ويسلح ليقوموا بما يجب عليهم القيام به من أعمال تخريب وإرهاب.

فما بالك لو اجتمعت الحالتان في بعض الأحيان وأعطيك السعودية مثالاً .. فهي توجههم بفكرها الوهابي وتدعمهم بالمال.

من يقول عن التعاون بين إسرائيل والإرهابيين هي إسرائيل نفسها وليس نحن

السؤال الرابع..

تتكلم الحكومة السورية عن علاقة وثيقة بين إسرائيل والإرهابيين.. نريد أن نفهم هذه العلاقة، نعتقد أنه بمجرد ذكر اسم إسرائيل أمام المتشددين الإسلاميين يصيبهم هذا بالهستيريا والكره الشديد…

السيد الرئيس..

إذاً لماذا عندما نضربهم عند الحدود تقوم إسرائيل بالاشتباك مع قواتنا لفك الضغط عنهم…لماذا عندما نحاصرهم تفتح لهم اسرائيل الحواجز كي يمروا ويقوموا بعملية مناورة والتفاف للهجوم من اتجاه آخر…لماذا قامت بالتدخل المباشر عبر الاعتداء على الجيش العربي السوري أكثر من مرة خلال الأشهر الماضية.

لا طبعاً هذا الكلام غير دقيق.. إن من يقول عن التعاون بين إسرائيل والإرهابيين هي إسرائيل نفسها وليس نحن. حيث أعلنت إسرائيل أكثر من مرة أنها تعالج العشرات من الإرهابيين في مشافيها.

وإن كانت هذه المجموعات تكره إسرائيل ومجرد ذكر اسمها يصيبها بالهستيريا والكره الشديد.. لماذا وعبر تاريخها حاربت هذه المجموعات الإرهابية ذات الفكر المتطرف الاتحاد السوفييتي، وهي تحارب مصر وسورية، بينما وعبر ثلاثة عقود لم تقم على الإطلاق بعملية واحدة ضد إسرائيل، ثم أصلاً من أوجد هذه المجموعات الإرهابية… هؤلاء الإرهابيون تم تجنيدهم ودعمهم من قبل الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية والغرب عموماً بتمويل سعودي في بداية الثمانينيات من أجل محاربة الاتحاد السوفييتي في أفغانستان.

كيف يمكن إذاً لهذه المجموعات التي شكلها الغرب وأميركا أن تضرب إسرائيل.

إذا كان هناك من يحلم بأن سورية ستكون دمية غربية فهذا حلم لن يتحقق

السؤال الخامس..

سيدي الرئيس، لقاؤنا معكم سينقل إلى لغات عالمية عديدة، وسيقرؤه قادة عالميون كثر قد يكون بعضهم ممن يعمل الآن ضدكم، ما الكلمة التي توجهونها لهم…

السيد الرئيس..

نحن اليوم نواجه كثيراً من السياسيين ربما.. لكنهم ليسوا رجال دولة.. بعضهم لا يقرأ التاريخ ولا يتعلم منه وبعضهم ليس لديه حتى ذاكرة قصيرة للماضي.. هل تعلم هؤلاء السياسيون دروساً من الـ 50 عاماً الماضية على الأقل، هل قرؤوا فيما فعله السياسيون الذين كانوا قبلهم أن جميع حروبهم فشلت منذ حرب فيتنام حتى اليوم… هل تعلموا أن حروبهم تلك لم تمكنهم من تحقيق أي شيء سوى أنهم دمروا الدول التي حاربوها، وخلقوا حالة من عدم الاستقرار في الشرق الأوسط ومناطق أخرى في العالم.


هل فهموا أن كل تلك الحروب لم تمكنهم من جعل شعوب المنطقة تحبهم أو تقتنع بسياساتهم.

نقطة أخرى أوجهها لهؤلاء السياسيين.. وهي أن الإرهاب ليس ورقة رابحة تضعها في جيبك تخرجها متى وأينما تريد وتعيدها مرة أخرى.. الإرهاب كالعقرب، يلدغك في أي لحظة، وبالتالي لا يمكن لك أن تكون مع الإرهاب في سورية وضده في مالي مثلاً.. لا يمكن لك أن تدعم الإرهاب في الشيشان وتحاربه في أفغانستان.

ولكي أكون دقيقاً جداً، أنا هنا بالطبع أتحدث عن الغرب ولا أتحدث عن كل قادة العالم.. أتحدث عن بعض القادة الغربيين الذين “إن أرادوا أن تتحقق مصالحهم” فيجب عليهم الاستماع لشعوب المنطقة وشعوبهم، لا أن يبحثوا عن قادة “إمعات” ظناً منهم أن هؤلاء سيحققون لهم مصالحهم.. عندها..ربما.. تتحول السياسة الغربية إلى اتجاه أكثر واقعية.

وإن كنت مصراً على أن أعطيك رسالة سورية للعالم.. فأقول إنه إذا كان هناك من يحلم بأن سورية ستكون دمية غربية، فهذا حلم لن يتحقق.. نحن دولة مستقلة، سنحارب الإرهاب، وسنبني علاقاتنا مع الدول التي نريدها بكل حرية وبما يحقق مصالح الشعب السوري.

الاتهامات حول الكيماوي هي اتهامات مسيسة بالمطلق وتأتي على خلفية التقدم الذي حققه الجيش في مواجهة الإرهابيين

السؤال السادس..

يوم الأربعاء اصطدمت الحكومة السورية باتهامات من قبل المتمردين باستخدام الأسلحة الكيماوية. قام قادة دول غربية عدة بتلقف هذه الاتهامات. ماردكم على ذلك، وهل ستسمحون للجنة التحقيق الدولية بالتحقيق بالحادثة…

السيد الرئيس..

حقيقة.. إن ما قامت به أمريكا والغرب وبعض الدول الأخرى منذ يومين، كان استخفافاً بالعقول وقلة احترام للرأي العام لديها.

ليس هناك جهة في العالم، فما بالك بدولة عظمى تطلق اتهاماً ثم تقوم بجمع الأدلة عليه. الذي حصل أنهم أطلقوا التهمة يوم الأربعاء وبعدها بيومين أعلنت الإدارة الأمريكية أنها ستقوم بجمع الأدلة. ثم أي أدلة ستقوم الإدارة الأمريكية بجمعها عن بعد.

أما بالنسبة للمنطقة التي يتحدثون عنها الآن بأنها تحت سيطرة المسلحين وبأن الجيش العربي السوري استعمل فيها سلاحاً كيماوياً، فهي منطقة تماس وتداخل مع الجيش السوري، فكيف يمكن لأي دولة أن تضرب مكاناً بسلاح كيماوي أو بأي سلاح دمار شامل في منطقة تقع على تماس مع قواتها، هذا يخالف العقل والمنطق، لذلك فإن هذه الاتهامات هي اتهامات مسيسة بالمطلق وتأتي على خلفية التقدم الذي حققه الجيش في مواجهة الإرهابيين.

أما بالنسبة للجنة التحقيق الدولية فنحن أول من طالب بلجنة تحقيق عندما قام الإرهابيون بإطلاق صاروخ فيه غازات سامة على ريف حلب شمال سورية.. وخاصة أن التصريحات الأمريكية والغربية قبل تلك الحادثة وعلى مدى أشهر، كانت تتحدث عن احتمال استخدام أسلحة كيميائية من قبل الدولة.. وهذا ما جعلنا نشك بأن لديهم معلومات حول نية الإرهابيين استخدام هذا السلاح لاتهام الدولة السورية وبعد التنسيق مع روسيا حول ما حصل، قررنا أن نطلب لجنة للتحقيق بالموضوع ، ولكن أمريكا وفرنسا وبريطانيا بشكل أساسي أرادوا استخدام القضية ضد سورية عبر التحقيق بادعاءات وليس بحقائق كما يفعلون الآن.. بينما ما طالبنا به هو التحقيق بحقائق على الأرض وليس شائعات أو ادعاءات.

خلال الأسابيع الماضية حصل هناك حوار بيننا وبين اللجنة، ووضعنا قواعد للتعاون.. خطها الأحمر السيادة الوطنية حيث سيتم كل شيء بالتنسيق معنا.. هذا أولاً.

ثانيا.. الأمر لا يتعلق فقط بالتحقيق بل بنتائجه التي ستعرض على الأمم المتحدة، وهنا أنت تعلم أنه يمكن تفسير النتائج حسب مزاج الدول الكبرى، لذلك ما ننتظره الآن بعد انتهاء التحقيق هو وجود موضوعية في تفسير هذه النتائج، وبالطبع نتوقع من روسيا أن تمنع أي تفسير يهدف لخدمة السياسات الأمريكية والغربية. المهم دائماً هو التفريق بين الاتهامات الغربية المبنية أساساً على ادعاءات وإشاعات وأقاويل وبين ما طالبنا نحن به من تحقيق مبني على أدلة ملموسة بينة.

السؤال السابع..

بالأخذ بعين الاعتبار تصريحات ظهرت في الأيام الماضية للإدارة الأمريكية ودول غربية أخرى، بأن الأمريكيين لا يستبعدون خيار القيام بعملية عسكرية في سورية هل ترجحون أن تتصرف الولايات المتحدة بنفس الطريقة التي تصرفت فيها بالعراق، أي محاولة إيجاد ذرائع للتدخل في سورية عسكرياً…

السيد الرئيس..

هذه ليست المرة الأولى التي يطرح فيها الخيار العسكري ضد سورية فمنذ البدايات سعت الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية ومعها فرنسا وبريطانيا إلى التدخل العسكري، لسوء حظهم سارت الأمور باتجاه آخر، وجاء التوازن في مجلس الأمن في عكس مصلحتهم، وحاولوا كثيراً مساومة روسيا والصين على موقفهما ولم يتمكنوا من ذلك.

نقطة لم تكن في مصلحتهم على الإطلاق هي الحصاد المر والنتائج السلبية لما جرى في ليبيا ومصر.. كل ذلك جعلهم غير قادرين على إقناع شعوبهم والعالم أن ما قاموا به هناك كان سياسة حكيمة وناجعة.

ما ظهر أيضاً هو أن الوضع في ليبيا يختلف عن مصر ويختلف عن تونس، وسورية تختلف عن كل تلك الدول.. فلكل دولة خصوصية تتميز عن الأخرى، ولم يعد من المقنع تطبيق السيناريو نفسه في كل الدول.

فهم يمكنهم بدء أي حرب لكن لا يمكن لهم أن يعرفوا إلى أين ستمتد أو كيف لها أن تنتهي.. وبالتالي وصلوا لقناعة أن كل السيناريوهات التي وضعوها خرجت عن سيطرتهم في النهاية.

الصورة الواضحة للجميع الآن بأن ما يجري في سورية ليس ثورة شعبية ولا مطالبات بالإصلاح بل إرهاب يحاول ضرب الدولة السورية، فماذا سيقولون لشعوبهم، هل سيقولون بأننا نذهب إلى سورية لندعم الإرهاب ضد الدولة.

الدول العظمى قادرة على شن الحروب، لكن هل هي قادرة على الانتصار

مداخلة السابع..

بماذا ستصطدم أمريكا فيما لو فكرت بتدخل عسكري أو بشن حرب على سورية…

السيد الرئيس..

ستصطدم بما اصطدمت به بكل حروبها من فيتنام حتى الآن… بالفشل.

أمريكا دخلت حروباً عدة لكنها لم تستطع ولا مرة من تحقيق الهدف السياسي الذي أرادته من وراء حروبها تلك ولم تستطع أيضاً لا أن تقنع شعوبها بجدوى هذه الحروب ولا أن تقنع شعوب المنطقة بسياساتها وأفكارها.

الدول العظمى قادرة على شن الحروب نعم، لكن هل هي قادرة على الانتصار.

السؤال الثامن..

سيدي الرئيس، هل لديكم علاقة مع الرئيس فلاديمير بوتين، هل تتحدثون معه بالهاتف، وإذا كنتم تتحدثون فما هي الأمور التي تناقشونها…

السيد الرئيس..

علاقتي بالرئيس بوتين قوية قبل الأزمة بسنوات طويلة.. وهناك اتصالات بيننا من وقت لآخر.. طبعاً على الهاتف لا يمكن أن تناقش قضية معقدة كالقضية السورية.. العلاقة الآن بيننا هي عبر المسؤولين الروس الذين يزوروننا أو المسؤولين السوريين الذين يذهبون إلى موسكو.. وطبعاً القسم الأكبر من هؤلاء المسؤولين يذهب ويأتي بعيداً عن الإعلام.

السؤال التاسع..

سيدي الرئيس، هل تخططون لزيارة روسيا في الوقت الحالي أو دعوة الرئيس بوتين لزيارتكم…

السيد الرئيس..

هذا ممكن طبعاً.. ولكن أعتقد أن الأولوية الآن هي للقيام بأعمال من شأنها تخفيف العنف في سورية، فكل يوم يسقط لدينا ضحايا.. ولكن عندما تتحسن الظروف نسبياً لا بد أن تكون هناك زيارة لأحد الجانبين.. أما الآن فزيارات المسؤولين تغطي هذه العلاقة بشكل جيد.

روسيا تدافع عن مبادئ تؤمن بها وعمرها الآن على الأقل مئة عام وفي مقدمتها استقلالية الدول وعدم التدخل في شؤونها الداخلية

السؤال العاشر..

سيدي الرئيس، متابعة للموضوع الروسي.. أنتم تعلمون بأن روسيا اليوم تواجه السياسة الأمريكية وسياسة الاتحاد الأوروبي خصوصاً فيما يتعلق بالملف السوري.. ماذا سيحدث إذا ما قامت روسيا بتقديم تنازلات حالياً… هل ترجحون مثل هذا السيناريو…

السيد الرئيس..

من المهم اليوم ألا يتم النظر للعلاقة الروسية الأمريكية من خلال الأزمة السورية فقط. يجب أن ننظر بشكل أعم وأكبر.

والموضوع السوري جزء منها.. فالولايات المتحدة ظنت أنه بسقوط الاتحاد السوفييتي قد قضي على روسيا للأبد.. ولكن بعد مجيء الرئيس بوتين في نهاية التسعينيات بدأت روسيا تستعيد عافيتها وموقعها تدريجياً، فبدأت الحرب الباردة بالاشتعال من جديد لكن بشكل هادئ وبطرق مختلفة.

لعبت الولايات المتحدة على أكثر من جبهة، دأبت على تطويق مصالح روسيا في العالم، وحاولت تحويل عقل المواطن الروسي كي يكون عقلاً غربياً بثقافته ومتطلباته، كان هدفها إنهاء الدور الروسي المهم والقوي، عبر اتجاهات عدة، منها الآن الموضوع السوري.

قد تسأل كما يسأل أي مواطن روسي لماذا تقف روسيا مع سورية…

من المهم شرح هذا الأمر للجميع، روسيا اليوم لا تدافع عن الرئيس بشار الأسد أو عن الدولة السورية فالشعب السوري قد يختار أي رئيس وأي شكل دولة يريدها وهذه ليست مشكلة، لكن روسيا تدافع الآن “أولاً” عن مبادئ تؤمن بها وعمرها الآن على الأقل مئة عام وفي مقدمتها استقلالية الدول وعدم التدخل في شؤونها الداخلية وخاصة أن روسيا عانت من هذا الموضوع وما زالت تعاني “التدخل في شؤونها الداخلية”.

السبب الثاني هو أن روسيا تدافع عن مصالحها في المنطقة “وهذا حقها” وهذه المصالح ليست كما يقول بعض المحللين السطحيين مرفأ في طرطوس مثلا، بل هناك ما هو أعمق وأهم بكثير من ذلك، فالإرهاب عندما يضرب في سورية سيؤثر على استقرار الشرق الأوسط وخاصة أن سورية دولة أساسية هنا، وهذا الاضطراب سيؤثر إذا ما حصل على روسيا بالطبع والقيادة الروسية تعي ذلك تماماً على عكس كثير من قيادات الدول الغربية.. هذا سياسياً.

أما ثقافياً واجتماعياً فلا يجب أن ننسى عشرات الآلاف من العائلات المشتركة بيننا وبينكم.. ما يخلق جسراً اجتماعياً ثقافياً وإنسانياً بين الدولتين.

لو كانت روسيا ستساوم “كما تسأل” لكان حصل ذلك منذ عام أو عامين عندما كانت الصورة غير واضحة تماماً حتى لبعض المسؤولين الروس.. أما اليوم فالصورة واضحة تماماً.. من لم يقم بالمساومة في حينها.. لن يقوم بها الآن.

كل العقود الموقعة مع روسيا هي الآن في طور التنفيذ

السؤال الحادي عشر..

سيدي الرئيس، هل هناك مفاوضات اليوم مع روسيا لإيصال شحنات من الوقود أو العتاد العسكري لسورية.. وبالأخص أود أن أسأل حول موضوع العقد المبرم بشأن المنظومة (أس 300).. هل وصلت إليكم…

السيد الرئيس..

طبعاً لا يمكن لدولة أن تعلن عن الأسلحة أو العتاد الموجود لديها أو الذي تتعاقد عليه.. هذا يعتبر جزءاً من أسرار الدولة والقوات المسلحة.. لكن ما أريد قوله هو أن كل العقود الموقعة مع روسيا هي الآن في طور التنفيذ.. ولم تؤثر الأزمة أو الضغوط الأميركية والأوروبية أو الخليجية على تنفيذها.. وروسيا تقوم بإمداد سورية بما تحتاجه للدفاع عن نفسها وعن شعبها.

السؤال الثاني عشر..

سيدي الرئيس، ما هي المساعدة التي تحتاجها سورية الآن من روسيا… هل هي مساعدة اقتصادية أم في العتاد العسكري.. هل يمكن أن تطلب سورية من روسيا اليوم قرضاً مثلاً…

السيد الرئيس..

عندما لا يكون هناك أمن لا يكون هناك اقتصاد. فضعف الوضع الأمني يؤدي بالضرورة إلى ضعف الوضع الاقتصادي وما تقدمه روسيا الآن لمساعدة السوريين في الدفاع عن أنفسهم ضمن اتفاقيات عسكرية سيؤدي بالنتيجة إلى تحسن في الوضع الاقتصادي.. هذا أولاً.


في الوضع السياسي.. موقف روسيا الداعم لحقنا في تقرير مصيرنا، وسيادة دولتنا ساعد أصلاً في الوضع الاقتصادي، فالدول التي تقف ضد الشعب السوري ترجمت مواقفها عبر كثير من التحركات أهمها كان الحصار الاقتصادي الذي نعاني منه الآن.. وما قامت به روسيا هو العكس تماماً.

إذاً وجواباً لسؤالك، فالمساعدة السياسية في المواقف، والعسكرية في تنفيذ العقود دون التأثر بالضغوط الأمريكية قد ساهمت بشكل ملموس في الوضع الاقتصادي رغم كل الحصار الذي انعكس سلباً على معيشة وقوت المواطن السوري.

أما اقتصادياً وبشكل مباشر، فهناك عقود مبرمة بيننا وبين عدة جهات روسية متعلقة بمواد وبضائع مختلفة، وأي قرض من دولة صديقة كروسيا هو فائدة متبادلة للطرفين.. بالنسبة للجانب الروسي فهذا يفتح سوقاً أكبر للشركات الروسية ويساعد في دعم هذه الشركات وانتشار بضاعتها إلى أسواق أخرى، وبالنسبة لسورية فهو فرصة لإعادة تأهيل البنية التحتية وتحسين وتنشيط الاقتصاد السوري.

أعود للتأكيد أن موقف روسيا السياسي ودعمها في هذا المجال هو الأساس الذي انعكس وينعكس على جوانب كثيرة في عودة الأمان وتوفير الحاجات الأساسية للمواطن السوري.

السؤال الثالث عشر..

سيدي الرئيس، هل نستطيع أن نحدد ماهية هذه العقود الآن… هل هي تخص المحروقات أم المواد الغذائية الأساسية…

السيد الرئيس..

المواطن السوري محاصر بغذائه ودوائه ووقوده، وهي أمور أساسية جداً في حياته.. وبالتالي ما تقوم به الدولة السورية عبر عقودها مع روسيا وغيرها من الدول الصديقة هو تأمين هذه المواد للمواطن السوري.

السؤال الرابع عشر..

نعود إلى الموضوع السوري والمشكلة السورية، نحن نعرف أنكم تصدرون العفو بشكل متتابع. هل هناك من المتمردين من شمله العفو، هل هناك منهم من أصبح يقاتل إلى جانب القوات الحكومية بعد العفو…

السيد الرئيس..

نعم هذا صحيح وكان هناك تحول كبير في هذه النقطة في الفترة الماضية خاصة بعد جلاء الحقيقة ووضوح الصورة أكثر بأن ما يجري في سورية هو إرهاب بحت. فبدأ الكثيرون بالعودة إلى الدولة وتم تطبيق القانون على حالاتهم، وكثيرون استفادوا من العفو وسلموا سلاحهم وعادوا لحياتهم الطبيعية.. لكن التحول الأهم هو تلك المجموعات التي أتت بسلاحها لتقاتل مع الجيش بعد أن كانت تقاتل ضده.. وهؤلاء هم نوعان.. الأول خدع بما كان يطرح في الإعلام والثاني حمل السلاح تحت تهديد الإرهابيين.

لذلك كنا دائماً كدولة نؤمن ومنذ بداية الأحداث أننا يجب أن نترك الباب مفتوحاً لكل من يريد العودة عن الطريق الذي سلكه ضد الوطن.. وكان هناك كثيرون ضد هذه السياسة في سورية لكنها أثبتت أنها سياسة مفيدة وخففت من توتر الأزمة.

بعض الدول التي كانت تقف بشدة ضد سورية بدأت بتغيير موقفها ودول أخرى بدأت فعلياً بفتح علاقات مع سورية

السؤال الخامس عشر..

سيدي الرئيس، من تستطيعون اليوم أن تسموهم حلفاءكم الحقيقيين ومن تستطيعون أن تسموه بأنه عدوكم… علاقات سورية مع دول عديدة تتساقط تباعاً مثل قطر، السعودية، تركيا، من هو المخطئ في هذا…

السيد الرئيس..

الدول التي تقف معنا هي دول معروفة بالنسبة للجميع دولياً.. روسيا والصين، وإقليمياً إيران. لكن أستطيع القول إن هناك على الساحة الدولية تحولاً إيجابياً.. فبعض الدول التي كانت تقف بشدة ضد سورية بدأت بتغيير موقفها، ودول أخرى بدأت فعلياً بفتح علاقات مع سورية، لكن لا أستطيع أن أضع كل هذه الدول في إطار الدعم المباشر.

بالمقابل فإن هناك دولاً دعمت الإرهاب وحركته في سورية بشكل مباشر، فكانت قطر وتركيا في السنة الأولى والثانية، قطر تمول وتركيا تدرب وتؤمن الممرات للإرهابيين، الآن حلت السعودية محل قطر في موضوع التمويل.. ولأكون واضحاً وشفافاً معك.. فالسعودية دولة لا تمتلك إلا الأموال.. ومن لا يمتلك إلا المال لا يصنع حضارة ولا يدعمها بل على العكس.. إذاً فالسعودية تنفذ المخططات بقدر ما لديها من مال.

أما تركيا فوضعها مختلف.. المؤسف أن تقاد دولة كتركيا ببضعة دولارات، المؤسف أن دولة كبيرة بموقع استراتيجي ومجتمع منفتح، تقودها دولة خليجية بعقلها المنغلق. كل ذلك بالطبع يتحمل مسؤوليته رئيس الحكومة التركية وليس الشعب التركي الذي يتقاسم معنا كثيراً من الموروثات والعادات والقواسم المشتركة.

السؤال السادس عشر..

سيدي الرئيس، ما الذي يجعل العلاقة الروسية السورية قوية لهذه الدرجة… هل هي المصالح الجيوسياسية أم هو تشابه ما تعرض له الشعبان في حربهما مع الإرهاب…

السيد الرئيس..

أكثر من نقطة مشتركة تجعل العلاقة السورية الروسية قوية لهذه الدرجة.. أولها.. أن روسيا تعرضت للاحتلال في الحرب العالمية الثانية وسورية ذاقت مرارة الاحتلال أكثر من مرة.

ثانيها.. أن روسيا عانت من محاولات متكررة ومستمرة للتدخل في شؤونها الداخلية منذ عهد الإتحاد السوفييتي وكذلك سورية.

ثالثها مهم جداً وهو الإرهاب… فكما نفهم نحن في سورية ماذا يعني قتل المدنيين من قبل المتطرفين الشيشان، واحتجاز الأطفال في بيسلان واحتجاز الرهائن الأبرياء في مسرح موسكو، يفهم المواطن الروسي عندما نتحدث عن نفس هذا الإرهاب في سورية لأنه ذاق نفس مرارته. لذلك عندما يأتي مسؤول غربي ليقول إن هناك إرهابيا سيئا وإرهابيا معتدلا، فإن المواطن الروسي لا يمكن أن يصدق مثل هذا الكلام.

هناك نقطة أيضاً تتشارك فيها روسيا وسورية وهي العائلات المشتركة كما ذكرت سابقاً، فلولا التقارب الثقافي والاجتماعي والفكري لما كان هناك عائلات تربط بين البلدين.

أضيف إلى كل ذلك، المصالح الجيوسياسية التي تحدثت عنها قبل قليل، فالاضطراب في سورية والمنطقة يؤثر على روسيا بالطبع، فروسيا تعي تماماً ما لا تعيه أوروبا والغرب من خطر الإرهاب الذي لا حدود له.

من كل ما سبق فإن من الخطأ القول إن موقف دولة عظمى كروسيا يقوم على مبدأ أو اثنين، هناك تراكم تاريخي وثقافي وفكري لهذا الموقف.

ما نتوقعه من مؤتمر جنيف هو أن يبدأ بممارسة الضغط على الدول التي تدعم الإرهاب في سورية من خلال وقف تهريب السلاح ووقف إرسال الإرهابيين الأجانب إلينا

السؤال السابع عشر..

سيدي الرئيس، نريد أن نسأل حول ما سيحدث في مؤتمر جنيف2، ماذا تنتظرون من هذا المؤتمر…

السيد الرئيس..

مهمة مؤتمر جنيف هي دعم المسار والحل السياسي في سورية، لكن لا يمكن البدء بالمسار السياسي قبل وقف دعم الإرهاب من الخارج، إذاً ما نتوقعه من جنيف هو أن يبدأ بممارسة الضغط على الدول التي تدعم الإرهاب في سورية من خلال وقف تهريب السلاح ووقف إرسال الإرهابيين الأجانب إلينا.

عندما تتم هذه الخطوة يصبح من السهل العمل على الخطوات السياسية وفي مقدمتها الحوار بين الأطراف السورية حول شكل الدولة في المستقبل والدستور والقوانين وغيرها.


نشكركم على الشعور الصادق والحديث الصريح في هذا اللقاء.

Ghouta-Damascus:Chemical weapons attack= false flag

false chemo flag Ghouta

ghouta children

As Terrorists  were killed in large numbers in ongoing army operations in Damascus’area ,the terrorists and servants of Zionism are so desperate that they hurry in posting lies which can be defaced by children!
Speaking of children:to make their lies’propaganda work Al Qaeda has started to kill MORE&MORE angels in massive attacks as the foreigners do not care about the Syrians’life!
I pray and hope that at least some of those children are only asleep as there are no signs of physical wounds and of course NOT even the smallest SIGNS OF POISONOUS INTOXICATION,but there are obvious psychological traumas  that the kids are forced by terrorists to bare! But if those children were killed,that is a new massacre against Syria’s children ,in order to get the attention of the UN observers and offer a gate to more bias lies!

Opinion: Danny Makki
Imagine that on the very same day UN investigators arrive in Damascus with the blessing of the Syrian government in order to investigate allegations of the use of ‘chemical weapons’ the ‘Opposition’ and the ‘mainstream media’ accuse the government of using chemical weapons this morning in Damascus of all places.


Karm AlZaytoon:Homs
Houla – Homs
Just two examples of the false flag massacres that #NATO Sex-Jihadists in Syria committed when similar investigation committees came to Syria!!
Today, just another massacre by the use of chemical weapons, matching the committees specialization!!!
In case you wonder where will they bring the chemical weapons from, you may ask#Erdogun who arrested the same kind of terrorists in #Adana – #Turkey when they didn’t use in #Syria and planned to use it against him…

And ,in case you’ve forgotten!!!

Meanwhile,Al Modamyeh area was hit by terrorists and there are many children among victims.

A media source on Wednesday dismissed as untrue the news broadcast by some media outlets that chemical weapons have been used in the Ghouta region in Damascus Countryside.

The source stressed that the reports circulated by the TV channels of al-Jazeera, al-Arabiya and Sky News among other channels which are involved in the shedding of the Syrians’ blood and supporting terrorism are completely baseless.

The source said the aim behind broadcasting such reports and news is to distract the UN chemical weapons investigation commission away from its mission.

These false flag information is being spread by terrorists ,only after a day from the tragic news about Latakya,where hundreds of children and women were the victims of massacres at Al Nusra’s devilish  hand.

UPDATE ON 22/8/2013

Stephen Johnson is an expert in weapons and chemical explosives at Cranfield Forensic Institute. He said there were inconsistency among the patients’ symptoms.

“There are, within some of the videos, examples which seem a little hyper-real, and almost as if they’ve been set up. Which is not to say that they are fake but it does cause some concern. Some of the people with foaming, the foam seems to be too white, too pure, and not consistent with the sort of internal injury you might expect to see, which you’d expect to be bloodier or yellower,” Johnson said.

Johnson said that although much of the video showed injuries consistent with trauma to the nervous system, it was too early to conclude that it was from chemical weapons.

bandar bin shit

After the empty-handed return of Bandar bin Sultan from Russia he gave orders to immediately start the war in coordination with the Americans and the Turks , a sectarian attack on the Syrian coast as the final card left in their hands, using thousands of terrorist Wahabi takfiri with orders to commit the most heinous type of crimes. Bandar bin Sultan declared the failure of the plan just one day after the announcement of the start of the battle.
Meanwhile CIA deputy director said: More foreign fighters are pouring into Syria
The Central Intelligence Agency ‘s second-in-command that there are now more foreign fighters from the West pouring into Syria to fight alongside al-Qaeda affiliated groups.

Speaking to The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday, Michael Morell warned that the violence in Syria was likely to spill across borders into Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq.He considered that the crisis in Syria is “probably the most important issue in the world today” and that it is also now poses the greatest threat to U.S. national security.

UN report: Crisis in Syria witnessed strong al-Qaeda presence

A United Nations report said the crisis in Syria has seen the emergence of a strong al-Qaida presence drawing from al-Qaida in Iraq attracting hundreds of recruits from outside Syria.

The al-Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra constitutes along with the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham the core of backbone of the armed terrorist groups that are shedding the Syrians’ blood.

Despite the fact that the US has put Jabhat al-Nusra on its list of terrorist organizations, the US is still offering all forms of support, including arms, to the terrorist groups.

The new report, the 14th issued by analysts working for the Security Council Committee which deals with sanctions on al-Qaida, indicated that al-Qaeda and its affiliates have become “more diverse and differentiated than before, united only by a loose ideology and a commitment to terrorist violence.”

Yet, the report added, the diversity of al-Qaeda affiliates has not reduced the threat posed by these groups on civilians and national governments and on targets set by each affiliate in its area of activity.According to the report, the current leader of al-Qaida, Ayman al-Zawahiri, “has demonstrated little capability to unify or lead al-Qaida affiliates.”


Their reference to terrorist attacks by al-Qaeda to “point to the persistent challenge of acts of expressive terrorist violence committed by individuals or small groups,” was limited to the attacks in Boston, London and Paris without any mention of the terrorist bombings in Syria that left many victims and were claimed by Jabhat al-Nusra.

resident al-‪Assad‬, addressing to the audience :

‘No one can end the #crisis except ‪#‎Syrians‬ by themselves and by their own hands.”
The hostile party does not want any political solution.
You must strike terrorism with an iron fist.
The solution must be based on facts and not of dreams and wishes.
The people are the most powerful force.Syrians all are paying the price and massacres claim the lives of the Syrians in many places.
So it is either we win together as Syrians or lose together.

An army, which is not supported by the people collapses immediately.
Everyone looks to the military institution and hopes to end the situation today before tomorrow.
The most difficult thing is to change the structures in the circumstances of war and the armed forces were able to do this sort of thing and it had many achievements during the bold actions carried out by the armed forces during the past two and a half years of hard ratification
They left us no choice but to defend ourselves with our own hands
Every Syrian, regardless of his political affiliation, ethnic or religious pays the price
After two and a half years things became clear to the most countries except some that follow the Wahhabi Muslim Brotherhood and their approaches
President al-Assad: the other party does not want any political solution

President al-Assad: Syrian flexibility helped all the friends of Syria in any place of the world to defend Syria in all forums

President al-Assad: We will go to Geneva with hard evidence of the crimes of the external “oposition”
President al-Assad: We face external initiatives,against the Syrian sovereignty
President al-Assad: No one is able to end the #crisis, but the sons of Syria themselves and with their hands
President al-Assad: We need a frank dialogue away from all courtesies
President al-Assad: In order to be an useful and a productive #dialogue must be frank and transparent
President Assad: Ramadan is the month of jihad in the proper sense and construction work, and love
President al-Assad: We meet in order to assure that the nation does not abandon his children in conditions of adversity

President al-Assad: good comes from those who care for their people and all honest people who have stood with us in different places of the world
President al-Assad: good will not come to us from the owners of obscurantist thoughts, but from the Syrians belonging to their homeland

الرئيس الأسد: أصعب شيء هو تغيير البنى في ظروف المعركة وتمكنت القوات المسلحة من القيام بهذا الشيء ومن تحقيق إنجازات
الرئيس الأسد: نسبة الأعمال الجريئة التي قامت بها القوات المسلحة خلال العامين ونصف العام من الصعب تصديقها
الرئيس الأسد: كل الطرق جربت ولم يبق سوى خيار الدفاع عن أنفسنا بأيدينا
الرئيس الأسد: كل سوري بغض النظر عن انتمائه السياسي أو العرقي أو الديني دفع الثمن
الرئيس الأسد: هذه المعارضة ساقطة شعبياً وأخلاقياً ولا دور لها في حل الأزمة لأنها تسعى فقط لتحقيق المكاسب
الرئيس الأسد: لدينا معارضة وطنية وأخرى غير وطنية لم يكن لها هدف سوى تحقيق المكاسب
الرئيس الأسد: بعد سنتين ونصف السنة أصبحت الأمور واضحة لدى معظم الدول في ما عدا بعض الدول التي تنتهج الفكر الوهابي والنهج الإخواني
الرئيس الأسد: ما من إنسان عاقل يعتقد أن الإرهاب يعالج بالسياسة
الرئيس الأسد: الطرف الآخر لا يريد أي حل سياسي
الرئيس الأسد: المرونة السورية ساعدت كل أصدقاء سورية في أي مكان من العالم للدفاع عن سورية في كافة المحافل
الرئيس الأسد: ريما يكون العمل السياسي مساعداً في الحل لكنه ليس هو الحل
الرئيس الأسد: كنا سنذهب إلى جنيف مع أننا نعرف أن من سنفاوضهم لا يمثلون حتى أنفسهم بل الدول التي أوجدتهم وتمولهم
الرئيس الأسد: تعاملنا مع المبادرات الخارجية مع الأخذ بالإعتبار السيادة السورية
الرئيس الأسد: ما من دولة عظمى تمكنت من هزيمة دولة صغرى إذا كانت الدولة الصغرى موحدة
الرئيس الأسد: الوحوش خلقت حاضناتها الخاصة بها وبدأت تتكاثر وتستورد أخواتها من الوحوش من خارج حدود الوطن
الرئيس الأسد: في الوطن لا يوجد سوى أبيض مع الوطن وأسود ضد الوطن
الرئيس الأسد: لا أحد قادر على إنهاء الأزمة إلا أبناء سورية بأنفسهم وبأيديهم
الرئيس الأسد: نحن بحاجة إلى حوار صريح بعيد عن كل المجاملات
الرئيس الأسد: لكي يكون الحوار مفيداً ومثمراً لا بد أن يكون حواراً صريحاً وشفافاً
الرئيس الأسد: رمضان شهر الجهاد بالمعنى الصحيح أي العمل والبناء والمحبة
الرئيس الأسد: نلتقي لكي نؤكد أن الوطن لا يتخلى عن أبنائه في المحن
الرئيس الأسد: نلتقي على العهد وتجديد العهد
الرئيس الأسد: الخير يأتينا من أولئك الذين يذودون عن شعبهم ومن كل الشرفاء الذين وقفوا معنا في أماكن مختلفة من العالم
الرئيس الأسد: الخير لن يأتينا من أصحاب الفكر الظلامي بل من السوريين المنتمين لوطنهم

لذلك اما ان نربح معا كسوريين او نخسر معا، كل الخيارات جُربت ولم يبق سوى ان ندافع بايدينا والكل ينظر الى المؤسسة العسكرية ويأمل ان تنهي الوضع اليوم قبل الغد

President #Bashar #AlAssad:
Terrorism cannot be solved through politics, it should rather be hit with an iron fist,No solution can be reached with terror except by striking it with an iron fist,” said Assad. “I don’t think that any sane human being would think that terrorism can be dealt with via politics,”
Speaking during an iftar feast with several Syrian political and religious figures on Sunday, the Syrian president called the Western-backed opposition as “a failure.”

Assad said the so-called Syrian National Coalition can have no role in ending the country’s war.He added that Syrian crisis will only be solved by ending terrorism in the country.

Assad called for amity and urged the need to strengthen moral values in the #Syrian society.

He praised the people for standing with the Syrian forces.

The #SAA have recently conducted successful clean-up operations across the country, inflicting heavy losses on the militants. and impassible success missions all around #Syria

“There may be a role for politics in dealing with terrorism pre-emptively,” said Assad, adding that as soon as “terrorism” has arisen, it can only be struck out.

Assad also said Syria’s economic woes “are linked to the security situation, and they can only be solved by striking terror”.

He meanwhile stressed the need for the army to fight on against the rebellion. “It is true that there is a battle being fought in the #media and on (the #Internet), but the crisis will only be solved on the #battlefield,”

” any efforts towards a political solution should be combined with continued military operations. “There cannot be any political efforts or political progress if terror is striking everywhere. Therefore terror must be struck in order to get the political process moving on the right track,”

Assad also lashed out against the main opposition National Coalition, describing it as a “failure”. “This opposition is not reliable … and it has no role in solving the crisis,” the president said.

He accused the Coalition of “being on the payroll of more than one Gulf country”, and of “blaming the (Syrian) state for terrorism rather than blaming the armed men.”
