Syrian President "Bashar al-Assad" said that the Syrian society, that has been known for its amity and tolerance for centuries, will never accept the wahabi and takfiri mentality, adding that this dangerous mentality does not only threaten Syria but also all of the region’s countries.
The remarks came during President al-Assad’s meeting with a delegation of the Anglican Church comprising clergymen from USA, Sweden, Switzerland, Lebanon and Syria, headed by Amgad Beblawi, Mission Coordinator for the Middle East at Presbyterian Church in the USA.
President al-Assad said that one of the main problems regarding the western, and particularly the U.S, approach in dealing with the region’s issues is that most of their leaders are far from comprehending the reality and nature of the region and the interests of its peoples.
Al-Assad stressed that the majority of the western leaders are working to achieve their narrow interests which are far from the interests of their peoples and countries.
Members of the delegation expressed their solidarity with Syria and rejection of any foreign intervention in the Syrian affairs, hoping that peace and security will prevail again in this country, which represents a model for cultural and religious variety.
