Paris attacks result of French policy: Assad

AFP, DAMASCUS

AFP, DAMASCUS: Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said Saturday that French policy had contributed to the “spread of terrorism” that culminated in attacks claimed by the Islamic State group which killed 128 people in Paris.
In a meeting with a delegation of French lawmakers in Damascus, Assad said France’s “mistaken policies... had contributed to the spread of terrorism.”
“The terrorist attacks that targeted the French capital Paris cannot be separated from what happened in the Lebanese capital Beirut lately and from what has been happening in Syria for the past five years and in other areas,” he said.
Assad was referring to twin bombings claimed by IS which killed 44 people on Thursday in the southern suburbs of Beirut, a stronghold of his Lebanese ally, Shiite militant group Hezbollah.
Assad regards all the rebel groups fighting his forces inside Syria as “terrorists”, not just IS.
Assad said he had “warned against what would happen in Europe for the past three years.”
“We said, don’t take what is happening in Syria lightly. Unfortunately, European officials did not listen,” he said, in comments to the delegation broadcast by France’s Europe 1 radio.
He said French President Francois Hollande “should change his policy.”
