Moscow, SANA-Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Moallem affirmed that Russian President Vladimir Putin is exerting big effort and devoting a valuable time to stop the bloodshed and restore stability to the region.
On President Putin’s invitation for a regional coalition to combat terrorism, and al-Moallem’s response that this needs a miracle, Foreign Minister told Russia today TV in an interview broadcast Tuesday that countries, which have conspired for more than 4 years against the Syrian people, supported and armed terrorists from 100 states and sent them to Syria, need a miracle to change their policy into countries that combat terrorism although UN resolutions force these countries to fight terrorism.
“I believe that the move of terrorism from Syria and Iraq into the gulf states and the explosions in Saudi Arabia, then in Kuwait were as an alarm set,” al-Moallem said.
Answering a question on the countries which President Putin have talked about their suspicion in the outcomes of elections in Syria, al-Moallem said that President al-Assad has a popular will, wondering if countries like Saudi Arabia and Jordan have any elections.
“The Syria people have supported President al-Assad because he is the safety for Syria who will restore it to the shore of safety,” al-Moallem said.
“But to say that there is no calm in Syria or no end to violation in it except after the departure of President al-Assad , this is a silly stance which won’t indicate a political experience because President al-Assad is not Syria, but he is the protector of Syria,” al-Moallem added.
On the possibility of Syrian security coordination with those states to face terrorism, al-Moallem said “As for combating terrorism, we are ready to coordinate with all sides because this phenomenon will affect the security and stability of the neighboring countries and the whole world.”
As for so-called “moderate opposition,” al-Moallem affirmed there is no moderate opposition because those who kill don’t write on their bullet “a moderate”, adding that the US won’t be shy when announcing that it allocated one billion USD to support what it called “moderate opposition.”
On whether the latest wars were to affect the government politically to offer negotiable concessions or not, al-Moallem said “they planned for that, but we in Syria believe that the political solution is the final one to end the crisis.
Concerning accusations against the Syrian government to exploit the file of minorities in Hasaka and Sweida, al-Moallem affirmed that Sweida families and their support to the Syrian government and army was the thing which protected the city from the crimes of those terrorists; likewise, the people in Hasaka defend their house and land in cooperation with the Syrian army.
On the parliamentary elections in Syria, al-Moallem added “the elections will be held in the summer of 2016 according to the Syrian constitution regardless of the field situation.
As for reconstruction in the country, al-Moallem said there are regions where the army has been able to liberate, so the process of reconstruction is being run like Homs.
