President Assad Receiving a French Delegation

DAMASCUS, (ST)_ H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad received here Sunday the visiting French Delegation, comprising 3 MPs from the French National Assembly and a group of intellectuals, chaired by MP Thierry Mariani.

President Assad asked about the safety of the delegation which was targeted by a terrorist attack near Aleppo Airport.

These attacks caused the martyrdom  of tens of thousands of Syrians and caused the destruction of Syria's infrastructure as well, added H.E. President Assad.

President Assad pointed out that the delegation movements in Syria, particularly in Aleppo might help them as to have realistic viewpoints regarding the crimes perpetrated by the terrorists against the Syrian People.

Regarding the French policy on Syria, President Assad asserted that the current policy of Paris is distanced from the reality of the ongoing war against Syria and helped as to aggravate conditions through its support for the terrorist organizations, which is in the interest of nobody, particularly of the French.

On their part, members of the visiting French delegation stated that their current visit to Syria in general and to Aleppo  in particular is a genuine opportunity to view what the Syrian People has been exposed to during this war.

The viewed and seen on the ground proved the big improvement of conditions on the ground, which proved the capability and ability of the Syrian People and Army as to restore security, stability and steadfastness in the face of terrorism, underlined the delegation members.

The delegation members underscored that the Public opinion in the West, especially the French, is by now aware that the information about the ongoing in Syria and the region is not true and includes many disinformation, asserting their determination to help the public opinion as to have the true picture about the ongoing with no distortion.

 On December 29th, 2016, President Assad received a joint delegation, comprising MPs from the European Parliament and the Federal assembly of Russia, where President Assad asserted that EU officials have to know that the solution in Syria is by the Syrian People.

If the European Countries want to help the Syrian People, they should first halt support to terrorists and lift the unjust embargo hitting the daily basics for the Syrians, underscored H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad.

President Assad pointed out that Western officials have to admit that the terrorist attacks in their countries are but a result for their wrong policies and have accordingly to ask themselves about whether the policies pursued by them are to or against the interests of their people.

Regarding the fight against terrorism operation, H.E. President Assad added that this operation is being carried out through  the military track, which is going in a good form due to the Russian support, draining the financial resources which the terrorists can depend on as to recruit people to their ranks.

''Most importantly is also the know-how to deal terrorism as an ideology where the Wahabi thinking worldwide should be eliminated as to succeed in fighting terrorism,'' outlined President Assad.

"Russia through its backing to Syria does defend the security of the Syrians as much as defending the security of its people and of the Europeans too,"  highlighted President Assad.


On July 10, 2016, H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad underscored the important role to be played by European MPs as to correct the wrong policies adopted by some of their governments.

Receiving a delegation from the European Parliament, chaired by  Vice-President for the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the European Parliament Javier Couso, President Assad pointed out that such wrong g policies led to the mushrooming of terrorism and to deterioration of Syrians' life conditions through the imposed economic siege and sanctions.

Such sanctions push many Syrians to leave Syria and migrate to other states, outlined H.E. President Assad.

The ongoing in Syria and the region is consequently to have big influence over Europe in light of geography and standing cultural bonds, added President Assad.

The crises facing Europe including terrorism and extremism and the waves of migrations and refugees were caused by the pursuance by some leaders in the West of policies not in the interest of their people, particularly once such leaders provided backing and political cover for the terrorist groups in Syria.

Members of the European MPs pointed out that their visit to Syria and touching of the sufferings imposed on the Syrians because of terrorism crimes would but enable them to work for correcting the policies of European governments and work as to lift the unjust sanctions imposed on the Syrian People.

The sovereignty and integrity of Syria should be safeguarded, underscored members of the visiting European MPs, asserting that the Syrians alone are to decide the future of Syria away from any foreign interference.
