ED Noor: This interview with Mr. Assad is perhaps one of the best summaries of the current situation with Syria, Turkey and Russia that you will find anywhere. Assad speaks clearly of all that is true and says that a victory in Aleppo could seriously change events. I offer the video but the read is so much clearer to understand. Highly recommended for clarification purposes.
President of the Syrian Arab Republic Bashar al-Assad gave an interview to reporter of "Komsomolskaya Pravda" Daria Aslamova.
President Assad: Our, let's say, media are not disconnected from what's going on, but you need again to have the balance between how much you need to have close-to-natural life, not completely normal life... So you need this balance. Of course you have many different points of view regarding the media, because media is about the perception. If you don't try to live this life, the terrorists will defeat you, because that's their aim.
You cannot say "I'm going to fight this ideology" and at the same time allowing their sheikhs or imams promoting, at their madrasa, promoting this dark ideology. It's impossible.
