The stability of the Syrian state is the highest priority, whatever its leadership is, Le Pen said during the interview.

“The question comes to the choice: do you want there to be at least some state or an Islamic State [Daesh]?” Le Pen asked.

According to the politician, the political fate of Bashar al-Assad should be decided by the Syrian people in the course of future democratic elections. As for now, Assad is the only politician who is able to have the country under control and not let it fall apart.

“[…] Syrian rebels are now unable to keep the state from falling. We need to see the situation not how you want it to be, but how it really is,” the French politician said.

Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war, France has been one of the strongest opponents of the Assad government. Besides its participation in the military airstrikes against ISIL terrorists, France was also training non-Islamist rebels in the Middle East in order to strengthen the opposition and overthrow the “repressive” Syrian leader.

“Fighting against Bashar al-Assad for three years, we have strengthened ISIL positions, “ Le Pen said, implying that the chosen political strategy is absolutely counterproductive.

According to the politician, France should finally change its political course and cooperate with Assad to resolve the Syrian conflict.

    My kind of woman!!! Not because I’m French, but she’s a great lady. Of course, she doesn’t have a hard act to follow. Namely, the walking, talking, Jew proselyte, puppet – Francois Hollande. A clear reflection of that cesspool of Jews and Jew proselytes in Washington DC and Langley, Virginia.

    This is a direct opposite and correct view of the US “talking heads” who want up to believe otherwise.
