Secretary-General of the Syrian Coalition Abdul Ilah Fahd said that Russia cannot maintain its interests in Syria by continuing to kill Syrians, but by listening to the demands of the Syrian people. He stressed that Russia cannot continue to support a crumbling regime and the undisciplined Iranian-led militias who are unable to defend a small town such as Tadmur from ISIS.
Fahd called for a halt to all indiscriminate attacks on civilians in Syria, the protection of civilians, the lifting of the siege on Syrian towns and cities, and the release of detainees in line with international resolutions including those co-drafted and approved by Moscow.
The Syrian revolution is aimed at building a democratic, pluralistic state that has good relations with all the peoples of the region and the world, including Russia, Fahd said.
Fahd stressed that Iran cannot be trusted, pointing out that the Iranian-backed terrorist militias are obstructing the evacuation of civilians from eastern Aleppo. Iran insists on pursuing a military solution in Syria, he added.
