Syria's Assad threatens to attack area under US-backed Kurds

In Jordan Israel and Iran secretly negotiate future of Syria – report

Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has said a threat by President Bashar al-Assad to use force to recover the swathe of northern and eastern Syria controlled by the group would not yield any results.

"This is the first option".

"We were close to have direct conflict between the Russian forces and the American forces", he said. "My assessment is that the situation we're in is an opportune moment to try to change fundamentally the strategic situation", he said.

Syrian civil war erupted in 2011 when Assad regime reciprocated to protesters poured into streets to demand more rights and freedom with harsh treatment. "The Americans should leave, somehow they are going to leave", he said.

"They came to Iraq with no legal basis, and look what happened to them", he said.

The EU also strongly supports U.N. -led peace talks on Syria but they have made scant progress since conflict first erupted there in 2011, largely because the Russian Federation and the United States are backing opposing sides in the war.

The Syrian President said if it was not for the foreign support to the rebels in Syria, the militants could have been defeated within a year.

Iran says int'l consensus over nuclear deal isolates US
India imported Dollars 10.5 billion worth of goods, mainly crude oil , and exported commodities worth USD 2.4 billion. It said New Delhi wants the nuclear deal's signatories to engage constructively with Tehran.

Russian ally Assad initially embraced President Donald Trump's election, but USA allegations that the Syrian leader was behind toxic gas attacks and subsequent US airstrikes have split the two.

Bashar al Assad has reacted to being called "Animal Assad" by US President Donald Trump with a phrase usually heard in school playgrounds.

First, the pull out of U.S. forces within the next six months-at a time when Iran is in the process of establishing several permanent military bases in Syria, loaded with medium and long-range missiles that can reach any part of Israel-is a recipe for war between Israel and Iran. With the support of Russian Federation and Iran, the Syrian regime mounted an offensive on the eastern Ghouta enclave and seized it in April.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned his government would not allow Iran to maintain a military presence anywhere inside Syria. "It represents him, and I think there is a well-known principle, that what you say is what you are". "They are going to leave", Assad added.

Russian Federation said on Monday only Syrian regime forces should be on the country's southern border with Jordan and Israel, after Washington warned of "firm measures" over truce violations in the region.

Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu discussed a de-escalation zone in southern Syria with Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman in Moscow on Thursday. "Apparently referring to the May 10 attack by Israel, Assad said: "We had tens of Syrian martyrs and wounded soldiers, not a single Iranian" casualty".
