Shaaban : West’s reaction to terrorism weak and too late

Damascus, SANA- Presidential Political and Media Advisor Bouthaina Shaaban described reaction of West countries to terrorism as “weak and too late”, saying “these countries did not show a sense of leadership and if they wanted to prove that they should be respected, they must evaluate the life of each human.”

“The West doesn’t give interest, except for its citizens”, Shaaban said told AFP on Tuesday, wondering “what would we say about our citizens who have been killed since four years, we draw the world’s attention to terrorism that targets every city and village in Syria.”

She pointed out that President Bashar al-Assad has warned against terrorism, which will extend to the whole region and world if the World’s countries don’t help us confront it.

Shaaban affirmed that French president Francois Hollande didn’t call for establishing a coalition against terrorism except when it targeted Paris, hoping that Hollande would have succeed in establishing a coalition with Russia, the United States and other countries against ISIS terrorist organization, and the international powers would work together to “kill this cancer, represented by terrorism.”

She said “the US Secretary of State John Kerry showed an excess of optimism when he talked about rapid political transition in Syria.”
