President Bashar Al-Assad: Trump's Travel Ban Does Not Target Syrians

President Bashar Al-Assad: Trump's Travel Ban Does Not Target Syrians

"And that happened. It happened in Europe, mainly in Germany", Mr Assad said.

"Raqa is a symbol", Assad said, asserting that jihadist attacks carried out in France were "not necessarily prepared" in the Islamic State group (IS) stronghold in Syria.

Surprisingly, he also appeared to back USA president Donald Trump's efforts to ban Syrian nationals from entering the United States were, saying the measure was aimed at keeping terrorists out and not Syrian people in general.

Assad recently gained the upper hand in Syrian civil war, after his army, backed by Russian airstrikes, closed in on rebel-held areas and retook Aleppo, the country's largest city, last year.

The Syrian leader said it was the "duty of any government" to regain control of "every inch" of its territory.

In his interview, Assad criticized the West for its "passive" role in helping resolve the Syria crisis and said Western countries had "lost their chance of achieving anything in Geneva twice". Turkey has sent a lower-level delegation to the talks, compared with the previous round, because some senior diplomats were accompanying President Tayyip Erdogan on a foreign visit, Lavrentiev said. But he said the opposition had yet to receive an agenda for the talks, which are due to begin on February 23 following preliminary meetings beginning on February 20.

Regarding torture, he said, "We don't do this, it's not our policy", adding: "Torture for what?".

"We now want to get into the essence of the political process - the discussion of the political transition - and what the Geneva 1 communique stipulated about the formation of a transitional body with full powers", Muslit said. "Without it, it would have been far more hard for us to combat them", Assad said.

The militants say they seek to obstruct any army attempts to capture a strategic border crossing with Jordan.

Representatives from the Syrian government and rebel groups were holding fresh talks in Kazakhstan on Thursday with Russia, Turkey and Iran to bolster a fragile six-week ceasefire.
