Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs responds to Trump’s statement over assassination of President al-Assad
Syrian Foreign Ministry statement said that Trump’s statements reveal the level of the obnoxious political behavior and thought of the US administration and indicate its criminal professionalism to reach its targets.
The statement said Trump’s confession of such a step confirmed the US is a rogue state that uses the same methods of terrorist organizations with murder and liquidation, turning a blind eye to any humanitarian, moral or legal rules in order to achieve its interests in the region.
The statement of Syrian Foreign Ministry comes a day after Trump confessed in an interview on Fox News that he requested a confidential operation to assassinate Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad.
According to Trump’s statement, he discussed the matter with his former Secretary of Defense, Mattis but the latter did not agree and warned him of the consequences of such a step on the levels of the war in Syria, the situation in the Middle East and the global level at large.
