BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 P.M.) – Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad held a new speech on Sunday during a meeting with several local council heads from all over Syria.
During the speech, the Syrian President spent a considerable amount of time attacking the U.S.’ role in Syria and their attempts to partition the country.
“The scheme of imposing hegemony on the world led by the U.S. hasn’t changed and the reality of our people’s resistance has become more solid, affirming that the homeland isn’t a commodity; it is sacred and it has its real owners and not thieves,” Assad told the audience.
“After all of those years, the agents haven’t learned that nothing gives a man his value except his real belonging,” the Syrian President said, adding that the only way to get rid of misguidance is to join the reconciliations and to hand over the arms to the Syrian state.
“We have been able to eliminate terrorism thanks to our armed forces and the support by the supporting forces, the allies, the friends and the brothers,” he continued.
The President said, “it couldn’t have been possible to protect the homeland without the unified popular will through different segments of the Syrian society.”
“The Syrian people have a deep-rooted history and they have resisted terrorism…We achieve victory with each other, not on each other,” President al-Assad said.
The Syrian President turned his attention to the Kurdish groups in Syria, warning them not to trust their American partners.
“We say to those groups who are betting on the Americans, the Americans will not protect you,” he said without naming them.
“The Americans will put you in their pockets so you can be tools in the barter, and they have started with (it),” he added.
