Syrian President Debates with Russian-European Delegation
20 de marzo de 2017, 18:04Damascus, March 20 (Prensa Latina) Syria will hold its commitment to fighting terrorism, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said in a meeting with Russian-European Parliamentary delegation.
In this regard, he stated that the present situation in Syria is a conflict between countries wishing to maintain the international law, led by Russia and China and others who break this law by supporting terrorist groups, and the intervention in the internal affairs of our nation.
'Syria is willing to hold talks to all on the condition that arms must be laid down and commit themselves to the constitution,' al-Assad stated, when adding that the reconciliation process has the support of the people and has had positive results to preserve a large number of lives and protect many areas.
Without this support, the State would not have been able to move forward to fight extremism and intervention from abroad, the Syrian president stressed in the dialogue with the Russian-European Parliamentary delegation led by Vladimir Vasiliev, vice-president of the Council of the Russian State Duma.
What distinguishes this representation, he said, is that it is a joint delegation between Russia and Europe, and therefore it provides a useful opportunity to debate on the policies of their respective countries regarding what is currently happening in Syria.
The parliamentarians unanimously highlighted the importance of joining international efforts to fight terrorism and noted that the positions of some European countries have begun to change, mainly when European officials had perceived this scourge in their own countries.
