DAMASCUS, (ST)_ H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad asserted the necessity for tackling the phenomenon of terrorism and extremist thinking as a global issue where no borders can stand before its proliferation.
Many countries in the region and Western Countries, including France, are still supporting terrorism and providing political cover for the terrorist organizations in Syria, underscored President Al-Assad here Wednesday.
Receiving Mr. Jean-Frederic Poisson, member of the National Assembly of France and Chairman of the Christian Democratic Party, H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad cited the importance of a role by French Institution, on top by the French Parliament, as to correct the policies of their present Government, as to work for the security and stability of our region, which is but to be in the interest of the French People.
The main cause for the sufferings of the Syrian People is terrorism first and its consequences of destruction for scores of fundamental infrastructures, and the second cause is the sanctions imposed on Syria, which negatively affect the citizens life conditions and services, especially health services, President Al-Assad added.
Members of the visiting Parliamentarian French delegation asserted the importance of the rallying of efforts in fighting terrorism, expressing their belief in the need for new policies regarding the war in Syria, especially that the Western policies have so far achieved nothing as to end this war.
The French delegation members asserted that as parliamentarian, they would spare no efforts as to make changes in these policies to alleviate the suffering of the Syrian People.
The conditions in the region in light of the ongoing war of terrorism and the threats of terrorism and extremism against the region countries and scores of world countries were focused at during the meeting.
On July 12, 2015, Mr. Jean-Frederic Poisson, member of the National Assembly of France and Chairman of the Christian Democratic Party, underscored that the stability in Syria is to be positively reflected on the region stability as well as on stability in Europe,
Received by H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad, Mr. Poisson asserted that such a stability would never be achieved but through supporting the Syrian State and dialogue with President Al-Assad as to solve the crisis in Syria and in parallel with the fighting against terrorism.
The French veteran Parliamentarian underlined the necessity of cooperation with the Syrian Government as to eliminate terrorism and limit its risks.
H. E. President Al-Assad reiterated during the meeting the importance of the role played by wise Parliamentarians and Politicians in France and Europe in general in correcting Western policies towards Syria and the region.
Such Western policies have been proved as a failure contributing to the expansion and proliferation of terrorism, reaching to European States, because they paid no heed to the region people's demands, interference in the region domestic affairs, and because they pursued double standards in fighting terrorism, H.E. President Assad pointed out.
President Assad spoke during the meeting about the war waged by the Syrian People against the terrorist organizations, backed by regional and European countries, and about the risks of this very terrorism against the region stability as well as of Europe stability in general.
MP Poisson stated that the crisis in Syria could not be solved through the EU or the West in general nor by the US without talking with President Bashar Al-Assad.
MP 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.
