Syrian FM: “The U.S. hasn’t learnt a lesson from what happened in Afghanistan”

KABUL: (MEP) – “The U.S. hasn’t learnt a lesson from what happened in Afghanistan. Once they supported al Qaeda in Afghanistan, now they are doing the same in Syria,” Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem said at the joint briefing with his Russian counterpart in Moscow, APA’s Moscow correspondent reports. He said that the U.S. intends to make Syria the center of al Qaeda now.

Muallem expressed his gratitude to those who oppose the war: “We are very satisfied that the U.S. people and Pope have opposed the war. How can it be that herald of democracy – U.S. President Barack Obama doesn’t listen to the voice of the U.S. people?!”

The Minister said that they are ready to hold Geneva-2 peace conference: “There are still opportunities for peaceful solution of Syrian conflict. We have agreed on this conference, without any pre-condition. We are ready to receive the UN Security Council Commission of experts.”

Muallem said that they had appealed to the UN Security Council regarding the countless crimes committed by the armed fighters in Syria.
