Speaking to Belgian broadcaster VRT in Damascus, the President al-Assad said: “The EU is supporting terrorists in Syria from the very beginning.
“Under different titles; humanitarians, moderates and so on. Actually, they were supporting al-Nusra (al-Qaeda in Syria) and ISIS from the very beginning, they were extremists from the very beginning, so they cannot destroy and build at the same time.”
President Assad blasted the EU’s role in Syria, claiming they support ISIS
European Union countries supported the people who destroyed our country, we don’t want them here
President al-Assad insisted that EU nations in Syria were no more than puppets to their “masters” in America, as he continued his rant against foreign intervention in his country.
He added: “If you ask any Syrian the same question, he will tell you, ‘No, we don’t accept [EU involvement], those countries supported the people who destroyed our country, we don’t want them here.’ That’s what I think.
Speaking on Fox News, the American President claimed it was vital his administration “get on with Russia”, so they can collaborate to eradicate Islamic terrorism globally.
