Bashar al-Assad accuses Britain of `bullying’ Syria
London: Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has accused the British government of bullying and naivety in its approach to end the two-year-old crisis in his nation.
During an interview with the UK`s Sunday Times newspaper, Assad said that the UK in has played a famously unconstructive role in our region on different issues for centuries.
He said the problem with this government is that their shallow and immature rhetoric only highlights this tradition of bullying and hegemony.
According to the BBC, Assad stressed that Britain was determined to militarise the situation.
The leader also repeated his conditional offer of talks with the opposition and dismissed suggestions that he might step down.
About 70,000 people have been killed in the Syria n uprising that started almost two years ago.
Hundreds of thousands of refugees have fled to neighbouring countries.
