Britain, US Supporting Terrorists in Syria: Deputy FM
Story Code : 659670
Interviewed by the BBC and Reuters, Mikdad said that there is a secret program by the US to support the militants, through which the terrorist groups have been supplied with everything such as chemical materials, explosive devices, shells and bombs.
“The British role was also known of supplying terrorists with arms, and I think that a lot of British officials are proud of their relations with militants in Syria.” He added that, “materials which we have displayed in videos prove with no doubt that the Western states in general are involved in supporting terrorist groups in Syria through supplying them with chemical substances and other things to blame the Syrian Government for using them after they are used by these terrorist organizations.”
“After the unjustified US attack against al-Sha’airat Airport, we would not be surprised by any foolish act by the US or in alliance with others. Today, the international coalition is shelling hospitals and killing innocents whether in Deir Ezzor or in Raqqa, and they used to blame government in the past for such acts,” he went on to say.
The Deputy Minister added that the campaign launched against Syria regarding the use of chemical weapons was meant to justify any reckless act they might do because they haven’t been able to achieve what they want through their terrorist pawns, indicating that Israel stands behind all of these attempts to continue to weaken the Syrian b Army and to divert it from its main battle of restoring the legitimate historical rights, whether in restoring the lands of the occupied Syrian Golan or the occupied Palestinian territories.
Coordination with Russia
Mikdad affirmed that there is daily coordination between Syria and Russia on different issues, saying “we know everything what is going on. Whether some of the measures are announced from Moscow or Damascus, eventually they take place on Syrian territory.”
“Coordination is ongoing between the Syrian and Russian sides at the highest levels and in different domains, and the process of announcing some of the procedures from here or from there is a technical process that is subject to many considerations, and we appreciate and understand that,” Mikdad said.
Syria will not give up any inch of its territory
He stressed that the government of Syria will not sacrifice even a hair’s breadth of what is related to Syria’s territorial integrity and will not give up any inch of the 185,000 km of its land.
Mikdad said that the victory which will be achieved today, tomorrow, or the day after in al-Sukhna will open the door for continuing to advance towards the besieged Deir Ezzor which is deprived of any food, water, or medicine without any cry from those who call themselves “international community.”
“We will advance towards Deir Ezzor and other areas that will be defined by the leaderships, but with regard to the north of Syria, we don’t want havoc and destruction, yet there is a miserable situation now in the northern areas in Raqqa and to the north of it,” Mikdad added.
He clarified that the so-called “international coalition” proved by shelling the forces of the Syrian Army, whether in al-Tanf or in al-Tharda Mountain, or through downing the Syrian airplane, that it supports the terrorist forces, adding “whoever wants to fight terrorism wouldn’t attack the army fighting terrorism which is the Syrian Arab Army and its allies.”
