Syria: The Road to Peace Goes Through Conflict

The President of Syria, Bashar Assad, addressed the gathering in Damascus to the readiness of his army against Israel and said “Resistance is a legitimate right of our people and it will exist as long as there is an occupation on our land.”

Assad confirmed that political negotiations are underway between Israel and his country, through a third country, and added that the talks between Israel and Syria should be conducted seriously and take place in accordance with the UN resolutions, “Israel knows what is acceptable to us and what is not acceptable to us.”

Assad referred to the issue of the Golan Heights and said “Resistance is the legitimate right of our people and it will remain so as long as the occupation remains on the homeland. The road to peace goes through a confrontation with the depriving power,” Assad said.

“My country is preparing for war with Israel, this is an existing possibility,” however, the Syrian President said that he does not foresee such a war taking place under the current circumstances.

“None of us rule out the option of war, but there is a debate as to whether Israel will declare war on Lebanon and Syria or whether America will declare war on Iran... We know that there are those in the American government who want this war and we are preparing for the worst.” (INN / VFI News)
