Syrians Will Not Allow Anti-Syria Project To Come Into Effect ,Says al-Zoubi

DAMASCUS, (ST) –"Syrians will not allow the anti-Syria project to come into effect regardless of the sacrifices," said Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi".

Al-Zoubi's remarks came during the memorial service of martyr Mohammad al-Ashram,  al-Ikhbariya TV  reporter, who was killed while on duty by terrorists in Deir Ezzzor,

"They (mercenaries) are nothing in comparison with the overwhelming majority of patriotic Syrians who work to build their country and sacrifice their lives to preserve its sovereignty," clarified al-Zoubi.

"Armed Forces and  civilians are hand in hand to defend their country,"said the minister.

"the conspiracy against Syria seeks to undermine the Syrian model with its national and pan-Arab dimensions, which is why western countries and its Arab agents are escalating, arming and funding because they know that the Syrian model cannot be made a failure  by slogans, fake protests and false claims of legitimate demands",stressed al-Zoubi.

Al-Zoubi affirmed that the sacrifices of the martyrs of journalism, Armed Forces and all other sectors will not go to waste, saying that the confrontation is currently in its most complex stages, its highest and most difficult and violent points, and its widest in terms of geography, type of weapons used and all security and military standards.

He described the "Doha coalition" as  a gang due to its rejection of dialogue .

"Meanwhile, the Syrian state and its parties and national and social forces have a political process with the headline of 'going to war at any time,'" the Minister said, adding that the "Doha coalition" and its members  who reside in Arab and foreign capitals are responsible for the repercussions of violence and killing in Syria.

"How will the "Doha coalition" justify standing in the same line and forming a strategic alliance as a partner with Al Qaeda which brands all Syrians as infidels?" he concluded.

"there is a must to halt violence and putting arms aside", adding "the Syrian state is carrying out its duty in confronting attacks on freedoms and facilities".

He affirmed that the Syrian state is committed to launching an open political national dialogue, without any agenda, with all forces in the society under the title of national sovereignty, partnership and rejection of all forms of foreign intervention.

Minister Omran added that the Gulf funds and the instructions by Qatar or France are rejected and out from debate.

He added that rejection of foreign military intervention is the minimum of nationalism while the martyrdom of Mohammad al-Ashram, his colleagues and the army members constitute the maximum.

The minister expressed confidence that the crisis will come to an end and the Syrian state and people will win.
