today we're talking to syrian minister of foreign affairs mr vali done one on each other thank you for joining us for. new express deserve at the last meeting of foreign ministers of arabic states in cairo on the situation in syria where is the opposition welcomed them how do you think the arab league has been playing a constructive room. unfortunately due to the so-called arab spring countries that had been playing a significant role in the arab league's operation are now busy with their own domestic issues and this doesn't help consolidated solutions hopefully this issue ation will be resolved in the short term and these countries will become a sufficient again in consolidating the common arab cause this is first do you think it would be reasonable to discuss a country's problems without its participation. segment a proposal was made at this consultative meeting to free syria's membership of the arab league this is very
dangerous. participating countries spoke against this proposal how can one imagine resolving common are big problems without syria. and thirdly this proposal contradicts the league's charter as the board of the arab states leaders' has the power to suspend or freeze membership this power was breached when making a decision on libya and we're all well aware of what happened then to have the u.n. security council use the arab league's decision when adopting its resolution and then nato used this decision for its purposes. when arabs speak up with such proposals they understand the purpose of these actions in which is to undermine what remains of the common arab cause my view is the law and the opposition states that the syrian leadership has little time left to implement the reforms announced my president bush. but they're saying that the syrian people are paying with their blood for the laysan these reforms why is there such a delay in implementing them. and they sound like the first of all there is no
delay lark on the contrary a universal reform program underway in syria will be implemented in a record six months compared to other countries including russia where reforms lasted for several years i repeat that this is a record short period of time with those who speak about reforms know that certain laws should be passed to see them through the include laws on political parties and parliamentary elections slated for next february there are also elections to local self-government bodies a law on the media should also be possible that a commission has been set up to draft the country's new constitution and how fast should these things go and these are crucial issues solutions to which will determine the face of the new syria a pluralistic and democratic country a model example to other nations in the region these hasty action reasonable these are serious problems that require serious approaches based on experience and international norms of judging from that i would say that the country's leadership
is not slowing down reforms are and the deadline set by the syrian president are very short and in less than six months the country will see these reforms carried out and that is why i'm asking if the opposition really cares for the future of this country why it wouldn't begin dialogue and lay out some serious approaches to creating a new syria. as for the bloodshed a war let me ask you whether there's a regime anywhere in the world whose purpose is to kill its own citizens or rather isn't its direct purpose to protect its own. and citizens from terrorists we are confronted with an armed terrorist groups who have nothing to do with reform these groups are being armed and financed from abroad and every day syrian television reports new arrests of these groups members which are sowing terror what objectives do they have other than how to earn more money therefore we should differentiate the national opposition which is it favor of political economic reforms from these armed groups. and can you please do not know the trends these groups belong to and
who's given them during our long national month. according to our information these are al qaeda groups operating from iraq also traditionalist forces and muslim brotherhood units have been discovered these units are financed from two sources and by his nonis organizations in the arab world including the gulf states as well as organizations based in european countries the second source is a weapons and drug smugglers. more running low or. statements are made in the west one after another with his security forces continued to use violence against the protesters we actually saw the security forces in the armored vehicles in the streets of he found in their own homes are soon steering our visit to syria where so many troops are needed in syrian towns like homs bob. to start with the west only pretends it is worried about
human rights violations in syria if in fact it was the west that imposed economic sanctions that have hit the interests of the syrian population so hard if it were this is an obvious discrepancy within the western approach to syria that they have a plan which clearly foresee the parent of the ruling regime in syria followed by its complete overthrow that why are they doing this long to minimize syria's influence in the region and force it to abandon its independent stance the west seems to think that economic sanctions and will help topple our government though this is a. exactly why we should try to prevent this plan from being implemented secondly we have not used tanks for seven months we did use them in the very beginning to provide proper protection for our soldiers who are safe inside of them but no tank has fired on the battlefield so far it is natural that no country would welcome a terrorist group financed and armed from abroad these groups are a threat to citizens security and the work of state institutions and schools that
yesterday three children were killed in one family there was a baby girl who among the victims who was not an even seventeen months old they why is that what they call reforms or is it terror and who right now you understand why i can openly confirm that we did deploy our security forces in the regions where militants are operating with allow. a lot of an opposition maintains the dresser security council resolution that he too was supportive of the syrian government's position whereas you say that this step prevented foreign intervention into serious domestic affairs as you know russia proposed a new resolution through a security council under consideration now again would further steps can we expect syria to sale should the sneering solution be approved by wessel and crowley allen much forty. first of the war we do not expect the west to approve russia's new resolution. secondly vetoing the resolution has created benefits syria
but not only syria it gave us more time to implement reforms russia above all other states require the syrian government to implement the reforms in question and to maintain a comprehensive dialogue we did more than just make use of russia's veto we used to live from our reforms process and we agree with russia that any foreign intervention into our domestic affairs as an acceptable just as any attempt he may second omics actions against syria since they infringe upon the interests of syrian so that we are in the course of our consultations it became clear that russia is even more demanding than urging syria to forms and to maintain a comprehensive political dialogue another issue here is that russia is between the proposed resolution gave new life to the security council itself by stripping the usa of its decision making work awfully on the international this day oh yeah that's a very important thing just look at what there were not really did in libya iraq and afghanistan the truth is that the policy the united states is trying to
implement here in our region is far from unbiased and they're not even their own policy approaches a policy that serves israel's interests that only truth and i worked in the united states when ten years and i know this to be true that i was if. you have taken steps to livy ate the impact of economic sanctions in place to get syria you off what really is russia playing in the will plans have been made with. and resolve the situation the rules here and how to work a lot of. the west and that is the european union japan and usa have levied economic sanctions against us and that impede our economic development if they expected these sanctions to bring down the ruling regime quite naturally under such circumstances syria must rely on its sources and capabilities i am here by say. that we have enough strategic resources we have over a year's supply of food and basic products to meet the populations demand starting
with grain and so on and secondly we need to develop economic ties with countries pursuing an independent policy of countries which haven't joined this western iraq i mean such countries as russia india malaysia and china and there are enough states with developed economies and advantage events in science and technology and these are the states we shall develop our relations with the us by relying on our own capacities and building cooperation with friendly states we hope to make it through the current situation accordingly. it seems that turkey's close to recognizing the national council how will syria respond if this takes place. but i don't want to get ahead of events but turkey knows the scope of syrian turkish relations we signed the intergovernmental agreements followed by growth in trade and cultural exchange at the end goal is to establish strategic relations between the two countries we have been working towards this which in practice means that
citizens of both countries can visit each other under a visa free regime hopefully we won't go as far as to destroy the results of all our efforts over the last ten years. could we move to a different some shocking or did damascus suit any preconditions before agreeing to receive palestinian prisoners it's known in the west has been pressure on syria off of hosting the hamas leadership or did syria now to any specific conditions before agreeing to receive palestinians that were released from israeli jails. we have to remember that syria has been part of the palestinian issue we handed over the golan heights in an attempt to resolve the issue it's impossible to break this strong link between syria and the palestinian problem which is manifested both in our support for the resistance movement and attempts to resolve the problem at regional and international levels therefore so. it's natural that there could be no conditional requirements.
