Damascus, (SANA) – Prime Minister Dr. Wael al-Halqi said that the US, Western and Israeli use of lies and false pretenses like the use of chemical weapons to carry out military intervention in Syria came about because of the Syrians’ steadfastness and the victories of the Syrian Army over terrorism.

Receiving members of the People’s Assembly representing the provinces of Raqqa, Aleppo and Hasaka on Wednesday, al-Halqi said that Syria will emerge from the crisis stronger than before and will confront the west’s lies of using chemical weapons, noting that the world remembers the lies and false pretenses used by these countries to misdirect the international public opinion before invading Iraq.
He pointed out that the countries that are beating the drums of war against Syria are the same ones who committed massacres in Iraq, Lebanon and other countries, exploited the Arab people’s resources, and committed massacres against the Palestinian people since 1948.
Al-Halqi said that the US and Israel are the ones who created terrorism and Al Qaeda, and that Jabhat al-Nusra and other terrorist groups are pawns of Washington and Israel used for carrying out their plots and keep the Atab people occupied with internal conflicts.
The Prime Minister said that Syria will become the graveyard of any invader, and that it will not be terrorized by colonialist threats, asserting that the Syrian people are going about their normal lives and are prepared for all challenges.
He also stressed the need for cooperation between the executive and legislative authorities to boost Syria’s ability to remain steadfast, confront challenges and provide citizens’ needs, affirming the government’s commitment to provide citizens’ needs across provinces as security is restored to them.
