Syria Rejects Solutions Imposed from Abroad
Damascus, June 30 (Prensa Latina) Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said his country rejects any solution to the crisis demanded from abroad, no matter its content, he noted.
Al-Assad expressed the Syrian position, coinciding with the celebration today in Geneva, Switzerland, of an international summit to find agreement leading to the solution of the violence crisis in this country, promoted by Western powers and Gulf monarchies.
We do not accept in Syria any model other than Syrian, whether they be imposed by the superpowers or proposed by friendly countries, the head of state said in an interview with Iranian TV channel 4.
If the Syrian people, the government and its armed forces were not united, it would not withstand the foreign onslaught.
Al-Assad expressed the support to the six point plan by the UN special envoy, Kofi Annan, which in his opinion is a good initiative, still viable now and in the future, mainly the article related to the end of violence.
That means the end of violence, he added, the cessation of criminal actions of the terrorist groups and the end of the financial and weapons support by countries that sponsor terrorism.
He noted that some Western players make false claims, accusing Damascus of the failure of Annan's initiative and justifying in this way the adoption of resolutions by the UN Security Council against his country.
He warned that a military aggression will have consequences for the entire region, a problem, he said, that goes beyond the calculations of those promoting this measure.
He made a call for a solution to create a Middle East without any imposition from abroad or dictates by occupation or hegemony, coming from the hopes and interests of the peoples of the region.
He criticized those countries inciting the conflict in Syria by supplying the armed groups for terrorist actions, and stressed that those killing the Syrian people are a mix of few, but dangerous criminals and religious extremists.
