Forum on Syria's role in a changing world
Syria-Regional-USA, Politics, 10/17/2005
Syria's Minister of Information, Mehdi Dakhlallah, said that Syria is under intense media attacks because of its pan-Arab stances, and rejection of war as a means for solving international issues, "particularly after the unipolar hegemony which seeks to work out problems in ways that are not peaceful."
The minister added that Syria has no reason to back down from its stances because it asserts that "wars have become impossible and occupation is now in a great crisis."
The minister was speaking Sunday in a two-day forum on "A Reading of Syria's Role in a Changing World" started on Sunday with the participation of intellectuals and strategists from Syria and Arab states.
"Syria had already said it rejected the logic of wars, aggressions, and occupation...it has always asserted that wars will not solve the problem of terrorism but rather aggravate it, and opens the way for terrorism to exploit the environment of war, aggression and occupation," the minister said.
He said that Syria has always depended in its policy on cooperation and coordination with Egypt and all other Arab states.
The minister added that the process of reform in Syria has started in the political and economic fields, but the state of tension and wars in the region has been hindering this project.
