“So, for them the defeat of the terrorists is the defeating of their proxies, to talk bluntly. These are their proxies, and for them the defeat of these terrorists is the defeat of the countries that supervised them, whether regional countries or Western countries like United States, first of all United States, and France, and UK,” Assad said.
Assad added that because of the biased coverage of the situation in the Middle East, people in western countries are unaware of the real situation in the region.
“They [mainstream media] don't have the transparency, that's why they don't have credibility… If you want to look at what's happening in the United States is rebellion against the mainstream media, because they've been lying and they kept lying on their audiences,” Assad said.
He pointed out that the mainstream media has no moral values.
“Whatever they talk about, whatever they mention or they use as mask, human rights, civilians, children; they use all these just for their own political agenda in order to provoke the feelings of their public opinion to support them in their intervention in this region, whether militarily or politically,” the Syrian president said.
