Poisson: No sustainable solution to crisis without negotiating with President al-Assad

Damascus - The crisis in Syria could not be solved through the EU or the West in general or the US without talking with President Bashar al-Assad, said Jean-Frederic Poisson, member of the National Assembly of France and Chairman of the Christian Democratic Party.

During his meeting with Speaker of the People’s Assembly Mohammad Jihad al-Laham in Damascus on Saturday, Poisson referred to the disinformation and misleading the European people are being subjected to in regard to the nature of the events taking place in Syria.


I came to Syria to see for myself what is actually happening so that I can share my opinion in the debates taking place in France on the nature of the crisis here, he added.

I am one of a group of French politicians who always say that dialogue and negotiation must be held with President al-Assad to solve the crisis in Syria,” said Poisson, adding that there cannot be a sustainable solional and international parliamentary institutions could play in solving problems and conflicts through dialogue and diplomacy, saying Syria is now open more than any time
