Assad speaks out for first time since Great Satan US threats
On Thursday, Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad spoke out for the first time since the U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to attack Syria over the chemical weapons allegation.
Assad told the state-owned Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) on Thursday that any attack on Syria would only cause more instability in the region.
“With every victory achieved on the field, the voices of some Western states are raised and actions are intensified in an attempt by them to change the course of events,” Assad stated.
These voices and any possible action will contribute nothing but an increase in instability in the region, threatening international peace and security,” he added.
