Assad denies Russia makes decisions for him

Assad denies Russia makes decisions for him

Tehran, too, has sent military advisers to Syria, but Assad has denied that Iranian troops are on the ground.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad denied that military ally Russian Federation was making decisions for him, but said it was natural for there to be differences of opinion between allies, in an interview published on June 10 by state media.

Assad stated that "it is natural to have differences between the different parties, whether within our government or other governments; Russia-Syria, Syria-Iran, Iran-Russia, and within these governments". "Even though Iran's departure from Syria is a long process, I believe that if you set a goal, if you know where you are going, you have a greater chance of getting there", he said.

Netanyahu did not mention in the cabinet meeting that each of the leaders also made clear publicly that they continue to support the Iranian nuclear agreement which Israel adamantly opposes, and which the U.S. withdrew from last month.

The leader also responded to allegations that Russian Federation has started coordinating with Israel in regards to strikes against targets in Syria.

"Russia never coordinated with anyone against Syria, either politically or militarily, and that's contradiction; how could they help the Syrian Army advancing and at the same time work with our enemies in order to destroy our army?"

Syrian President Bashar Assad denied Russian Federation coordinated Israeli strikes inside his country, noting it was impossible for the Putin regime to both aid the Syrian Army and, at the same time, "work with our enemies in order to destroy our army".

Syria's war has also drawn in many Western powers, who first backed rebel groups against Assad then shifted their focus to defeating ISIS as part of a US-led coalition.

The objective of Western nations' intervention in Syria, "the main goal", Al-Assad explained, "is regime change".

"This is colonial policy, that's how we see it, and this is not new", he said. "The whole approach toward Syria in the West is, 'we have to change this government; we have to demonise this President, because they don't suit our policies anymore.'" he said.

"Now, there's no cooperation with any European intelligence agencies including the British".
