Syrian President Bashar al-Assad says Washington plays a role in the turmoil in Syria by supporting the armed gangs to destabilize the country. Assad says that the United States is “part of the conflict,” and that “they offer the umbrella and political support to those gangs to… destabilize Syria.”
“As long as you offer any kind of support to terrorists, you are partner. Whether you send them armaments or money or public support, political support in the United Nations, anywhere,” Assad said.
“The president should not run away from challenge and we have a national challenge now in Syria,” Assad said.
