Syria war: Assad denies claims about Russian Federation dictating his moves

No Russia Israel coordination on Syria strikes Assad Assad: Russia is not coordinated with Israeli ‘enemy’ in Syria

In a calculated move to guarantee the presence of Iranian-backed militias in Syria without any frictions with the Israeli forces on its border, the Bashar al-Assad regime is disguising them in Syrian uniforms.

In a wide-ranging interview in Damascus with the Mail on Sunday, Assad slammed the United States and British military actions in Syria as "colonial" while praising supporter Russian Federation.

Assad admitted that he has had disagreements with Russian Federation and Iran- which also supports the Syrian army-throughout the seven-year conflict. "I think that this is understood and accepted by these leaders", he added, noting that the full departure of Iran and Iranian backed forces from Syria would be "a long process".

He also claimed that such interventions had slowed down a resolution to the situation in rebel-held areas of southwestern Syria.

Netanyahu said that Iran withdrawing from Syria was a "prerequisite" for Syria's rehabilitation and for its prosperity, and even for stability in the Middle East as a whole.

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 USA withdrew from last month.

It is suspected of carrying out numerous raids on Syrian government positions and Hezbollah weapons caches over the years, and last month announced unprecedented strikes on what it said were Tehran-operated bases in Syria.

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

"No, no, that's not true", he said.

"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?"

In the new interview, Assad also blasted the American and British governments for "interfering" with his nation's sovereignty. "We need dialogue, particularly between young people", Assad said, as cited by Sablin.

The interview, according to the Mail on Sunday, was Assad's first with a British journalist since 2015.
