A political analyst tells Press TV that the Western-backed militants have attempted numerous times to create a pretext for war and a situation in provocation in Syria. He also noted that these attempts are meant to destroy not only al-Assad government but also the Syrian state. Syria has called on those of its citizens -including opposition figures abroad willing to participate in the national dialogue- who have left the country due to the unrest that began nearly two years ago to return home. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has stated that Damascus was always ready to hold talks with the opposition and political parties and that he would call for a “comprehensive national dialogue” after the terrorist activities stopped in the country. Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Eric Draitser, founder of stopimperialism.com (New York), to get his opinion on the issue of terror war on Syria.
