Assad supports Trump's immigration ban

Assad supports Trump's immigration ban”

"The West can not choose what is better for Syria: I or the Islamic State (terrorist group outlawed in Russia)".

From the very beginning, the West made a mistake by voicing support for the opposition in Syria, Assad said.

This did not stop Syria's contested dictator from telling French channel TF1 on Tuesday that Trump's travel ban is "not against the Syrian people".

Assad's government has often criticized Western states for their support for Syrian rebel groups, all of which are regarded by Damascus as terrorists, and has warned that such backing will lead to militant attacks around the world.

The Syrian conflict began when the Baath regime, in power since 1963 and led by Assad, responded with military force to peaceful protests during the Arab Spring wave of uprisings. "And that happened. It happened in Europe, mainly in Germany", he claimed.

The Syrian leader said it was the "duty of any government" to regain control of "every inch" of its territory.

As for the future of Syrias 4.8 million refugees, Assad said, “For me, the priority is to bring those citizens to their country, not to help them immigrate.”. Turkey has sent a lower-level delegation to the talks, compared with the previous round, because some senior diplomats were accompanying President Tayyip Erdogan on a foreign visit, Lavrentiev said. "They did not want to achieve peace in Syria".

"Russia's support is necessary to weaken the terrorists in Syria".

Regarding torture, he said, "We don't do this, it's not our policy". To get information? We have all the information.

"You have ISIS close to Damascus, you have them everywhere", Assad said, using another acronym for IS.

One of the sources also said that the sides hoped that talks on Thursday would produce a joint document.

"Now is the right time to step up efforts to normalize the political process in Syria", de Mistura told Lavrov in comments translated into Russian by the state-run TASS news agency. But he said the opposition had yet to receive an agenda for the talks, which are due to begin on February 23 following preliminary meetings beginning on February 20.
