Assad: Russia is not coordinated with Israeli ‘enemy’ in Syria

In an interview with British newspaper the Mail on Sunday, carried in full by Syrian state news agency SANA, Assad was responding to a question about whether Moscow now controls Syria's diplomatic and military moves.

"We were about to achieve reconciliation in the southern part of Syria only two weeks ago, but the West interfered and asked the terrorists not to follow this path in order to prolong the Syrian conflict", Assad said.

On the British and United States intervention in Syrian territory, the ruler said that it is illegal, while the Russian presence is legitimate as in the case of Iran, since both Moscow and Tehran were called by the Syrian government.

When pressed about Russian involvement with the conflict, Assad said that no foreign government dictates his government's actions.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has denied that Syria's main military ally, Russia, is making decisions for him, saying it was natural to have differences of opinion between allies.

"We've had good relations with Russian Federation for more than six decades now, almost seven decades".

Lebanon's powerful Hezbollah has also fought alongside the military of President Bashar Al-Assad ever since an uprising against his family's decades-long rule slid into a civil war that has raged for some seven years.

He told his cabinet, "I know that ridding Syria of Iran's presence will be a long process, but I believe that if you set a goal and you know where you're headed, you have a good chance of getting there".

The leader also responded to allegations that Russian Federation has started coordinating with Israel in regards to strikes against targets in Syria.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the cabinet on Sunday that his recent trip to Europe last week had resulted in "broad global agreement" that Iranian forces must withdraw from Syria. Iran and Hezbollah have been widely seen as instrumental to bolstering the success of Assad's forces throughout the war.

Netanyahu did not mention in the cabinet meeting that each of the leaders also made clear publicly that they continue to support the Iranian nuclear agreement which Israel adamantly opposes, and which the U.S. withdrew from last month.

Speaking at a press conference at the London center for Policy Exchange on the last day of his four-day European tour, the Prime Minister said that for many years he has repeatedly said the Russian President about the "legitimate right of Israel to defend itself from the Iranian regime that seeks to destroy us".
