In an interview with RT, Syrian President Bashar Assad warned European nations that they should fear jihadists that they are backing in Syria rather than refugees.
“How can you fear those few millions, the majority of them are moderates and they have few terrorists, while you support those terrorists directly in tens of thousands at least and maybe hundreds of thousands in Syria and you don’t fear that they’re going to go back to your country?” Assad pointed the hypocrisy of European nations.
“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.”
Speaking about the state of the Turkish-EU relations, the Syrian presient said that EU states “hate” Erdogan, “but they want him.”
