The Syrian director had clarified in a statement to the internet website MBC.net that a Syrian artists at the meeting with the President had interpreted their statements as wanting to boycott Syrian drama from the Gulf, and the artist, whose name Wael refused to reveal, caused Wael and Sulaf harm in order to seem like a national hero at their expense.
