Shaaban: I do not know if the UAE has interest in normalizing relations with "Israel"

There is no talk with the occupier until the withdrawal from our land Buthaina Shaaban, the political and media advisor in the Syrian Presidency, considered that President Bashar Al-Assad's speech before the People's Assembly was a keynote speech, and that President Al-Assad presented visions for the people, the People's Assembly and officials.

In an interview with Al-Mayadeen TV, Shaaban stated that President Al-Assad confronted in the speech all the factors that affect the war on Syria, and made clear that the strategic vision must come out with plans that can be implemented.

She pointed out that President Al-Assad focused on the mechanisms of work and national identity, noting that the aim of criticism is to turn it into positive action mechanisms.  President Al-Assad in his speech spoke about the negatives, saying: "That criticism must be constructive."

Shaaban noted that the reform process has not stopped, and that what distinguished President al-Assad’s speech was a long-term view, saying that President al-Assad liked to convey a message about the existence of a media breakthrough, as he spoke that “internal Zionists” are the ones who speak to the Zionists abroad. Arab countries are witnessing breakthroughs, and our enemies focus on infiltrations more than they focus on wars. The psychological aspect is an essential part of the war on Syria, underlining the importance of President Al-Assad ‘s speech in fortifying  the country.

Shaaban asserted that the most important tools for confrontation are confidence and public awareness, adding that confronting the media war is not limited to awareness, but needs procedures and plans, and patience in addition to work, will and innovation.

"When the enemy decided to release Sidqi al-Maqt, he refused to go out on the conditions of the Israeli enemy, which is an honorable stance, "Shaaban said, adding that  the indication of mentioning Sidqi al-Maqt in President al-Assad's speech is to emphasize that he is an example of a man adopting both a  free stance and dignity.

Shaaban confirmed that President Al-Assad rejects revenge on any issue, even on the issue of the corrupt, and that the President believes that revenge generates revenge and we must resort to tolerance, and that combating corruption is not for revenge but to address flaws. Regarding the issue of fighting corruption, we must focus on reform and accountability not on revenge- and this is a political methodology that preserves the nation.

"Syria is central in the Arab world resistance, and when we defeated the terrorist groups, the Israeli National Security Studies Center issued more than five bulletins about what Syria will do now after its victory over terrorism, " Shaaban stated.

Shaaban pointed out that President Assad's link between terrorism and the "Caesar Act", America and Israel is important because they are all parts of one scenario, and the demands that they put in the "Caesar Act" mean that we have to hand them over what they want, and thus rob the Syrian independent decision.

She stressed that our land is not permissible to neglect it, and it is not permissible for the occupier to feel that he can talk to us before his withdrawal from our lands, and our answer to all American messages is that we can talk after withdrawing from our land.

Regarding the Emirati-Israeli normalization agreement, Shaaban said: “Looking at the countries that normalized relations with Israel,  I want to ask: What has Israel implemented from all the agreements signed previously, from the Camp David accords, Wadi Araba and Oslo, and then the  agreement with the UAE? What is the interest of the UAE? The enemy succeeded in prompting the idea that the cost of war is very expensive and that peace is less expensive. I do not know if there is an interest for the Emirates with this normalization, what did Israel implement? ”

Syria takes the Arab people into account more than governments, and there is no salvation except by strengthening the Arab identity and national belonging, Shaaban asserted,  pointing out that for decades Israel has been trying to defeat Arab nationalism, and the solution for us is to adhere to our national identity and our Arab nationalism.

Shaaban noted that the Israeli enemy is interested in spreading Zionist influence over the Arab region, and surrendering to Israel did not make any Arab country better than it is, but rather made it worse.

Iran has proven that it addresses the Western blockade with wisdom and pride, and Cuba is scrambling to develop itself, so the challenge is not necessarily bad, and therefore the future of the Arab people and Arab countries is by possessing the elements of strength and steadfastness. Iran, Russia and Hezbollah are  our allies and friends, and what strengthens their position strengthens our position. She added: "President al-Assad’s words were a direct and clear response that our relationship with the allies is strategic and distinct, and what has been talked about the impact of these relations is part of the psychological warfare."

Shaaban explained that the occupation of our land and cooperation with terrorists against Syria unite the Turkish and Israeli Brotherhoods,  asking: “What is the difference between those who occupy the Golan and those who occupy Azaz and Afrin, or those who occupy the east of the Euphrates? For us, all of them are occupiers.  It is hypocritical for Turkey  to say that it is considering severing his relationship with the Emirates while it’s normalizing  with Israel with 40 billion dollars.

Shaaban pointed out that President Al-Assad confirmed that our land is precious to us and we will liberate it at the appropriate time. It is true that there are battles that must be fought, but that will come at the right time, and our goal is to liberate every inch of the Syrian land.
