No role for West & allies in Syria until they cut support to terrorists – Assad

‘Any form of constructive dialogue with the West and its regional allies will only be possible after they stop supporting the terrorists, Syrian president Bashar Assad has said. He also cautioned that it’s too early to talk about victory in the conflict despite recent gains by Damascus.

“Our army is achieving one gain after another every day to eliminate terrorists… We will continue to attack terrorists until the last terrorist on Syrian land [is gone],” Assad said in a televised address Sunday.

However, despite the recent military success, it is still too early to talk about victory as the “battle continues, and where we go later and it becomes possible to talk about victory… that’s a different matter,” he said as cited by Reuters.

The Syrian leader also praised the role of the Russian air force and Hezbollah fighters on their ground for their continued support in fighting terrorism.’
