Former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark-620x330

(SANA/Hazem Sabbagh) ~ Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark said that the U.S. training of groups of terrorists in Syria is a dangerous practice that aims at escalating fighting.

In an interview given to the Syrian TV on Friday, Clark said that training and arming individuals to take part in violence against another country is unacceptable and isn’t the right way to achieve world peace, adding that arms dealers are part of the problem of violence in the world.

He asserted that arming terrorists goes against U.S. laws, and that the U.S. is fully responsible if the weapons it provides fall into the arms of terrorists.

Clark, who visited Syria as part of a delegation of U.S. activists, said that Syria is going through hard times, and so he was motivated by his love for it to visit it and talk to some sides and see if he can help, adding that the Syrian government is working to avoid violence.

He said that terrorism can be stopped through group efforts by affected countries according to international laws and legal accountability.

Clark: “We appreciate Syrian people’s heroic struggle against terrorism”

(SANA/Mazen Eyon) ~ Presidential political and media advisor Buthaina Shaaban met on Wednesday a number of US activists, led by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark who listened to a detailed brief on the reality of events in Syria.

During the meeting, Shaaban said President Bashar al-Assad and Syrian people appreciate the delegation’s visit, wondering, in a letter sent to the Americans upon a request by members of the delegation “Who is the beneficiary side from the war on Syria at a time when the target has exceeded the personality of the President or government to go beyond to the destruction of Syria.”

“The visit of the US delegation is important as it is the first since the beginning of the crisis, led by  Ramsey Clark who has occupied many posts in the US and represents a very important body corporate for the American people,” Shaaban told the Syrian TV in a statement.

She added that what will Mr. Clark say when he returns to his country is important to be heard by the America people, and “when I asked him who is the beneficiary one from the war on Syria and why the US supports this war, Clark said that the reason is the US desire in destruction, as it did in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya.”

Clark, for his part, said the aim of the visit is to find more opportunities for dialogue and coordination among the Syrian and American people, adding “we saw culture and credibility in Syria and we appreciate the struggle of this people, affirming “We will disallow them to shift Syria into Iraq or Libya.”

For her part, Cynthia McKinney, former member at the US Congress, highly appreciated “Syria’s heroic stance, as people and leadership, in its war against the US imperialism.”

She added “The Syrian people are exceptional in their capability of resistance as the acts during 4-years have failed to achieve their goals.”
