Assad's advisor: Syrian crisis over in 2 weeks

World Bulletin / News Desk

There’s a chance to end the Syrian crisis in two weeks if there’s political will on all sides, says Bouthaina Shaaban, the political and media advisor to the Syrian president.

“If the various parties have the political will to put an end to the Syrian suffering, to the Syrian crisis, they can do it within weeks. If they can only stop financing the arming [of Syrian rebels] and the smuggling of terrorists across the border from Turkey, 50 percent of the Syrian crisis would be over in two weeks’ time,” Shaaban said in an interview with Russia Today.

She said that the Syrian government was ready to take part in Geneva-2 peace talks without any preconditions. President Bashar Assad’s government is ready to sit down for peace talks with “people who represent the political opposition” of the Syrian population, but not the armed rebel groups, Shaaban said.
