Syria: 'It’s dangerous for Europe to support terrorists in Syria' – Assad *EXCLUSIVE* *PARTNER CONTENT*

Syrian Arab Republic, Damascus
November 09, 2019 at 08:01 GMT +00:00 · Published

RT has released the trailer for an exclusive interview with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad which is due to hit the channel on Monday.

Assad said that EU should fear the jihadists it supports in Syria rather than refugees coming to Europe speaking in the exclusive interview in Damascus on Thursday.

Assad also said that it’s hypocrisy for European nations to fear that Ankara will send refugees to Europe, but continue to sponsor terrorism in Syria.

"Let’s say that sending those Syrians and other refugees is dangerous, the most dangerous [for] Europe is to support the terrorists in Syria, this is the most dangerous part," he concluded.

Speaking about relationship between Europe and Turkey, Assad noted that although the EU “hates” the Turkish leader, European nations cannot but listen to what he has to say, adding "they hate him, but they want him."
