BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 A.M.) – Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad sat down for an interview with Lebanese journalist Hosein Murtada on Wednesday in order to discuss a number of topics currently affecting his country.
The Syrian President discussed the situation in southern Syria, which he said had not been settled yet due to the ongoing talks of reconciliation.
However, the Syrian President did confirm the reports of ongoing talks between Russia, the U.S., and Israel regarding the fate of southern Syria.
“No, contacts are still ongoing between the Russians, the Americans, and the Israelis, while nobody is communicating with the terrorists, because they are mere tools, and they implement what their masters decide ultimately,” Assad began.
“This is what happened, i.e. there was an opportunity to reach reconciliation, but the American and Israeli interference prevented that possibility,” he continued.
Assad’s confirmed the recent reports that these three world powers were in fact negotiating and working towards a solution that avoid a possible conflict.
