Syrian President Bashar Assad received at his office Virginia state senator Richard Black who is currently visiting Damascus for the second time.
Assad discussed with his guest the latest developments in the country as well as the US policies toward the region.
Assad told Black that threatening other countries, sanctioning them and supporting terrorism are the main characteristics for the US policy nowadays; pointing out that ” making peace rather than promoting wars and destabilizing sovereign states would be more beneficial for the American government and people”.
For his part, senator Black confirmed that the policies adopted by the successive US administrations toward the Middle East were the reason behind the Arab people losing confidence in US policies.
Black also expressed admiration since so many areas which had been liberated from terror groups are now breathing life, wishing Syria and Syrian people peace and stability.
