President Bashar al-Assad of Syria has blasted the West and United States for fueling conflicts in the middle east.
The defiant Syrian leader on Thursday summoned members of the diplomatic corps at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with whom he discussed current political and military events, the existing alliances, and the ongoing conflicts.
President al-Assad pointed out that accusing the West and America of dealing on the basis of double standards is an inaccurate accusation.
“What is true is that the West and America follow one standard in their policy, which is permanent bias towards their own interests at the expense of the interests of other peoples and countries. Perhaps this is one of the most prominent reasons that ignite conflicts in many regions. In the world, including our region, which is currently witnessing a war on Gaza, represents a blatant example of this bias,” said President al-Assad.
President al-Assad asserts that the essence of American policy over the past decades until now has been military escalation and the creation of chaos, followed in this policy by Europe, which is living in a state of decadence not only on the moral level but even on the intellectual level.
al-Assad noted, “media coverage of what is happening in Gaza, which is full of superficiality and racism on the one hand, and allegations and lies on the other hand.”
He also stressing that what is happening in Gaza today has returned the Palestine issue to its true place in Arab conscience and consciousness.
President al-Assad considered that the West rushed to provide financial, military and logistical support to “Israel”, which represents the cornerstone of the colonial project in the region.
The diplomats asked a wide range of questions and opinions on politics and political thought.
