Speaker al-Laham: European countries should be more reasonable and stop supporting terrorists

Geneva, SANA – Speaker of the People’s Assembly, Mohammad Jihad al-Laham, called for a more reasonable and objective European attitude in dealing with the facts in Syria.

During a meeting with the Serbian Parliament’s Speaker Maja Gojkovic on the sidelines of the meeting of the Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) in Geneva, al-Laham also stressed that the European countries should stop providing support to the terrorist organizations that is being given under “false pretexts and names.”

He warned that the European countries would be the most affected by the spread of terrorism given the number of European nationals who have joined ISIS.

Gojkovic, for her part, said her country is aware of the falsification of facts practiced by some media about Syria, viewing the meeting with al-Laham as a “great opportunity” to get acquainted with what is going on in Syria away from the disinformation.

Al-Laham also met with head of the Brazilian parliamentary delegation to the IPU Assembly and discussed with him the Syrian-Brazilian parliamentary relations and the importance of enhancing communication and coordination in the field of fighting terrorism.
