Zoubi Dodges Activist’s Questions about ISIS

A video clip posted online Wednesday by an opposition broadcaster showed Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi dodging questions related to the shelling of civilians with explosive barrels and regime’s coordination with Al-Qaeda.


An opposition journalist confronted Zoubi, asking questions about Damascus’ position if the conference agreed that Assad should stand down.


Zoubi replied that: "Assad will not step down".


Journalists in regime's delegation then kicked the reporter, with the opposition Alkul radio station, Ahmad Zakaria. Zoubi also avoided the questions from opposition ANA  reporter, Rami Jarrah.


Another video clip broadcast on YouTube showed an Orient TV reporter being  described by the regime media delegation as a "terrorist".


“They claim that they are defending the country,” the regime journalist said.
