8:28, — Politics
In an interview to the ONT TV Channel Prime Minister of Syria Wael al-Halqi expressed gratitude to the Belarusian people and the country’s authority for provided support.
“I would like to thank Belarus for support, for standing together with Russia and giving a helping hand during the most difficult times for our country. On behalf of President of Syria Bashar Assad I express gratitude to President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenka for his stance in the issue. As for the situation in Syria, I would like to stress that there is no civil war here. Our army and people are fighting against international terrorism,” Wael al-Halqi said.
He emphasized that Syria pursues an open policy: “International observers can visit any facility they would like to. We are ready to get rid of chemical weapons within the agreement we are accomplishing. But the question is who are in the opposition. Those who seek to establish caliphate and follow the Shariat laws, those who cannot find common ground, those who do not think about the future of the motherland. Our official position is clear – we are for peace and freedom. We are ready for talks in order to put a stop to this chaos.”
