President Bashar al-Assad said that the Syrian people will never accept the Wahabi and Takfiri ideology, stressing that this dangerous ideology does not only threaten Syria but also all of the region’s countries.
During a meeting with a delegation of the Anglican Church, the Syrian leader praised the Syrian society, saying it has been known for its amity and tolerance for centuries, according to official news agency, SANA.
The Anglican Church compromises clergymen from USA, Sweden, Switzerland, Lebanon and Syria, headed by Amgad Beblawi, Mission Coordinator for the Middle East at Presbyterian Church in the USA.
President al-Assad said that one of the main problems regarding the western, and particularly the US, approach in dealing with the region’s issues is that most of their leaders are far from comprehending the reality and nature of the region and the interests of its peoples.
He stressed that the majority of the western leaders are working to achieve their narrow interests which are far from the interests of their peoples and countries.
