Assad Speaks to International Trade Union Forum

On Monday, President Bashar al-Assad met a delegation of participants from the 3rd International Trade Union Forum for Solidarity with Syria’s people and laborers held in Damascus.

During the meeting, Assad talked about the imbalance that existed in the world, as the productive powers, although they are the largest ones, are not partner to decision-making or even in the revenues, because of the biggest financial powers that want to dominate the world in order to achieve their own interests at the expense of the working classes, which expresses the real interests of peoples. 

Assad referred to the great role played by the Syrian workers throughout their history, which was clearly consolidated through the defence of the homeland against terrorist organizations, whether through continuing their works, in spite of dangers, or through their defence of their places of work, cities and villages.

He underlined that the Syrian vision always starts with the principle that the role of labor is an important part in society and it is a basis for social and economic stability, adding that building the homeland starts with participation by all sectors of society. 

Later, Assad answered questions from the attendees who expressed their confidence in Syria’s victory over terrorism and hailed the resilience of the Syrian people to preserve the unity of their country and its civilization. 

They affirmed their support for the Syrian people in the face of sanctions and the unjust blockade imposed by hostile states, expressing their trust in the capability of Syrians to rebuild their country to be better than what was before the war.
