Assad: Russia’s help “will speed up political settlement”

The Syrian government is flexible, trying not to miss a single chance for a peaceful resolution of the situation. The successes of the Syrian army and the Russian military support to this process do not interfere, on the contrary, they accelerate it, Bashar Asad told Russia Today.

“There are those who accuse us and Russia of this when they are trying to present Russia's intervention to counter terrorism as interference to support the president or the Syrian government and, thus, as a hindrance to the political process,” the Syrian president quotes the newspaper Look.

“Perhaps it could be so if we didn’t show flexibility from the very beginning, if we really persisted. However, if we return to the policy of the Syrian state five years ago, we responded to all initiatives, without exception, coming from all sides, even if they were not friendly, ”he said.

“The goal is not to miss a single chance for a settlement without trying it. Therefore, I can briefly answer this question, that the Russian military support, the support provided by the friends of Syria, and the military achievements of the Syrian army - all this will lead to an acceleration of the political settlement, and not vice versa. We have not changed our position either before the support from Russia or after, ”noted Assad.

Touching upon the topic of inter-Syrian talks, the president said:
“We went to Geneva and continue to show flexibility. However, at the same time, these victories will have an impact on the forces and states that impede the settlement, because these states, first of all - Saudi Arabia, Turkey, France and the United Kingdom, rely on our defeat on the battlefield to impose their conditions on negotiations. So these military actions and successes will speed up the political settlement, and will not prevent it. ”

        And this can be seen from the view of Assad, in which the light of victory shines, well done, he survived and then he will succeed. Good luck to him and the Syrian people.

      Well, they never loved us. Until a certain time, we were considered a weak country, and here we proved that we are able to defend our interests and our allies. Who is dropping saliva from the EU on us? And pocket American mongrels do this: Poles and Balts, well, and from 404, where without?

      the whole world hates Russia for a very long time ... they simply hate it out of fear and lack of courage .. so it's time to get used to it and that all partners just pretend to be better .. better let them hate than they love .. some kind of perverted love from them ..

        Do we need the love of the West and the USA?
        We ask ourselves questions, but does a man need the love of a beautiful, but selfish and gossipy lady, and besides, weak in one place? Well, contact at an affordable price, for example, after some deliberation, and as a beloved woman, most likely there will be no one who wants to.
        So the love of the West, who needs their specific love?

      Someone hates, and someone is even very good. Let everyone know that Russia is a good friend and a very serious enemy.
      Let mongrel bark. The dog barks, the caravan goes on.

      Does the whole world hate Russia? This is stupidity. This is just a media war organized by those who smell their decay. This has already happened in our history and more than once. Now is an amazing time when Russia is becoming a bastion of healthy forces and Ruzam on the planet. The points of this perception are everywhere. But they are still poorly audible due to their disorganization and disunity. Unite can only be a clear, accessible to the understanding of the masses IDEA. But Russia was forbidden to have it. And, moreover, to designate in its Constitution. What are we afraid of? The cards are already laid out, we must go further, and not sit, like a cancer behind a stone. The whole world is looking at Russia, but is afraid of the cry of an overseas host, except for Raul Castro, of course. You won’t take him on the back, like our Medvedev. And don't give a damn about his handshake!

        I will add. The forces of good are based on truth and compassion, which makes it impossible to use techniques that, roughly speaking, do not correspond to the commandments of the Lord. It is strength and weakness. But if they do it, then ... angry

      Forgive me, but why do the so-called "western partners" love us. Why don't we bend under them? Because our country is huge and very rich? Because we have our own worldview? For sending a friend on an erotic journey into the forest " "Bill and" friend "Boris? Do we need their" love "then, in the 90s we fell in love so much, still burps out, our heroes out there are Alexander Prokhorenko, Oleg Peshkov, we respect friendship and do it according to conscience, we hate betrayal and hypocrisy, we are compared people not by the presence of money in our pockets, but by the mind and conscience, so this infuriates the partners and their mongrels and sixes, the Balts, dill, pshek and other slaves, mind you, only Washington sixes bark and bark at us, with the rest We have an even and normal relationship, and in the person of Assad and the people of Syria, we have gained an ally and respect.

      But what when it was different? You might think that the US loves everyone.
      Russia, first of all, defends its geopolitical interests, and this is good. We already lived in love and harmony with the West in the 90s. This love did not end well.

    Russian aid in general is very strongly motivated for peace ... whatever recent conflicts ... coercion to peace was the main goal of Russian groups ...

    The world is an abstraction.
    People are different everywhere.
    Their opinion is shaped by "independent media" - an even greater illusion than "the world".
    To moan about "the opinion of the world community" is tantamount to worshiping the fifth star of the constellation Alde Baran.
    We need to work, fight for the interests of Russia, go our own way.
    So win!

    Actively leads. And from across the ocean you can hear the grinding of American teeth. They thought that Russia would be stuck in this conflict and the results would not be better than the American ones, and it won’t work out that way.

    Assad is great, he acts like a patriot of the country and defends the interests of Syria with all his might.
    This is very difficult because external forces do not abandon attempts to destroy the state from within. Most of all, the countries that themselves raised and armed the bandits pretend to be fighters for the liberation of Syria from the Islamic State.
    Syria's current dual destruction mechanism can be considered the pinnacle of American cunning. They created a two-layer mechanism: "armed opposition" and Ig, complementing each other, with the first force actually serving to cover the second, both politically and militarily. Winning in such a difficult game is aerobatics demonstrated by the leaders of the two states, both Putin and Assad.
    Good luck and victories to all of us, and our leaders.

      According to the method of Stalin winked
      "How to make everyone happy - shoot the dissatisfied" laughing
      So it is necessary for everyone who is against the current government - at a loss. The opposition should be, it goes without saying, but in parliament with mandates, and not in the desert with machine guns.

    Assad is right that without the help of Russia and friends, Syria would not have come to the successes it has achieved recently. We wish HIM success in the further struggle against this abomination that unleashed the war in Syria, from which only ordinary people suffer.
