Assad not to be Trusted

Prof. Arnold Cassola, AD spokesperson on EU and International Affairs, stated: “Bashir Assad is again showing that he is not to be trusted. After having supposedly accepted the points of the Kofi Annan peace plan, the Syrian army has increased its repression before today’s deadline. Hundreds of people are being killed every day in violent repression and today Syrian troops have even fired onto a refugee camp based in Turkey on the frontier with Syria. The EU and the international community should side with the people of Syria and with the democratic forces of the country against the brutal dictator, and the governments of Russia and China should use their strong influence to halt the massacre”.
