President Bashar Assad on Wednesday received a U.S. delegation including former congressmen, anti-war activists and journalists, headed by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark.
During the meeting, Assad said that the policies adopted by the U.S. administration in the region are based on waging wars, interfering in countries affairs, and dominating people and resources.
He said these policies do not serve the interests of the American people and contradict their values and principles.
The members of the delegation said they hoped peace and stability would return to Syria, saying that they will continue to defend Syria and work to expose the false accusations promoted by the Obama administration to to justify aggression against the Syrian people.
