Assad: Huge gap bwtween peace elements and Israeli demands
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Saturday addressed the Syrian Armed Forces, through The People's Army Magazine, on the occasion of the 64th anniversary of the foundation of the Syrian Arab Army. In his address, the Syrian leader mentioned his country's bid for peace.
"We really aspire for just and comprehensive peace, but there is a big difference between true call for the establishment of the basis of this peace in line with the resolutions of international legitimacy and accepting the Israeli demands that contradict the elements of peace and deviating from its requirements …because peace and occupation are contradictory and can not coexist …and the return of the occupied territories is non-negotiable and can not be compromised ….. the Arab Syrian Golan will remain Arab as far as the hand, the face, and the tongue are concerned….having Syrian air, water, land, and man…..it will wholly return to the main land."
