Assad says talks with the United States as a «waste of time»

The President of Syria in interview to the Russian TV channel said that he has no desire to negotiate with the leadership of the United States. A fragment of the video was shown by the office of Bashar al-Assad on Friday, June 22.

To the question whether it allows the possibility of dialogue with Donald trump, the Syrian dictator replied that, in his opinion, negotiations with America is impossible, because its foreign policy is against the interests of Syria.

«Negotiations with the United States to anything will not lead, it’s a waste of time. We are not going to communicate with Americans just because they are Americans. We are ready to talk with anyone who is able to make efforts to achieve a positive result. We believe that American policy in the future will not change,» — said the President of Syria.

According to Assad, the leaders of the United States become prisoners of «lobbyists, media corporations and large companies«. The Syrian President claims that negotiations with America has not brought any significant results of the last 44 years.

«They can tell you what you want to hear, but to do the opposite. The situation is only growing worse, and trump is very bright [to] example,» — said Assad.

The military operation was a response to a chemical attack in the province of Idlib. According to the American authorities, it was involved in Russia, supporting the policy of Assad.
