“It’s the stability of Syria that comes into the first priority, whoever the leader,” declared Marine Le Pen, president of the Front National, during an interview with Le Temps.
“The question is whether you want to have at least a government in Syria, or if you want to see Daesh established there. It is up to the Syrian people to decide the fate of Bashar al-Assad, by means of democratic elections to be held in the future. In the current environment, the only person who is able to control the situation in Syria is Bashar al-Assad. The Syrian militias will not be able to prevent the collapse of Syria. We must see things as they really are and not as you would like them to be. By fighting against Bashar al-Assad, in the space of three years, we have just strengthened the positions of Daesh. France will ultimately have to backpedal and, start to cooperate with Bashar al-Assad. “
