Britain prepared for war in Syria two years before the crisis flared up, France's former FM says 

Jun 14, 2013


Paris, (SANA)_ Former French Foreign Minister Roland Dumas said that Britain had been preparing gunmen to invade Syria two years before the crisis there flared up in 2011.

During a TV show, Dumas said ''I was in Britain two years ago, and I met British officials, some my friends…they admitted that they were up to something in Syria.''

''They even asked me to join them in my capacity as a foreign minister, but I declined,'' he added.

He indicated that the plan of striking Syria had been prepared in advance long before the 2011 events, adding that the goal was to overthrow the Syrian government that considers Israel an enemy.

The TV show was dedicated to discussing the war in Syria.

French magazine: 'Jihadists' involvement in Syria much bigger than Afghanistan

The French magazine "Le Nouvel Observateur" quoted a senior French official as saying that the participation of French Jihadists in Syria is bigger that their involvement in Afghanistan war.

The French magazine said that the French intelligence verified the identities of 270 French nationals who are fighting in Syria, indicating that their return has become a major concern for the French interior ministry.

The magazine said that the number of European 'Jihadists' fighting in Syria ranges between 1,500 and 2,000, in addition to hundreds of Tunisians.
