Mikdad: Political Solution Must Prioritize Fight Against Terrorism

Syria supports Russian president's proposal to form a regional coalition to combat terrorism, says deputy FM

Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mikdad affirmed that no political solution to the crisis in Syria is possible unless it views combating terrorism as its major priority.

Speaking at a Baath Party forum in Damascus Sunday, Mikdad rejected a difference between “moderate” terrorism and “extreme” terrorism”, stating that whoever holds weapons and fights the state should be labeled a terrorist.

Mikdad declared Syria’s support for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s initiative to form a regional coalition for fighting terrorism, stating the objective of the initiative is to find solutions, not create problems.
