8:31 am
a solemn and he says they're standing up to london and washington to protect freedom of speech. up next r t here is how western countries is fueling all of the syrian conflict is solely to serve their own goals in the region. today we're joined by christiane sen he's an analyst specializing in the middle east particularly syria renia relations and he also founded the assyrian a friendship association here in belgium about four years ago thanks very much sadness for us for joining us today the first question i'd like to ask to establish the basis of your opinion you established this is so see a sham syrian friendship does that mean you are considered pro assad as you have been portrayed in the belgian media i'm considering me as pro syria pro syrian people i'm convinced that the only way to get out of this crisis out of this
8:32 am
bloodshed is by following the path of free for a lot to offer firelands so if i see i'm ready for him i don't see i'm pro sets. but if you look to the reality in the city and go from the men's who also is willing to follow this path of reform and you've written and said that the armed uprising in syria has been supported or started from be outside but do you also acknowledge the fact that the syrians from inside want change and what is the basis of your analysis on this i do believe is that the violence what we are seeing you know this has nothing to do with the forum this has to do with destroying to people. i'm also convinced. i have a lot of testimonies from from people in syria that a lot of. what they call the rebels the members of the syrian free army it's a matter of fact they are foreigners i mean this is not
8:33 am
a forum in syrians are not interested in this is syrian people out of very. peaceful peaceful people. who live together for centuries. we don't have any problem. so the violence we're seeing no it's not a syrian products i went to daraa. which. which was the whole the beds the year before where the trouble started. also that it's near to the jordanian border it's not a coincidence that the trouble started at the border there. at the border. because this underlines once again the influence from abroad i mean. if you're in the situation in syria what's really. a syrian. or a city and problem trouble would have started from. our
8:34 am
homes a lot of. outside forces and governments are interested in the to destroy syria why because you have to remember the city has a very strategic position in the area in the middle east in the region i think the main targets as a matter of fact is. that because iran is such a powerhouse in the region it's so strong. they know that to take out iran first they have to take out syria and i'm quite convinced if they would succeed to destroy syria the next order to get will be hezbollah in lebanon i wonder if these two allies are taken out. they will concentrate one hundred percent on the you know who are you referring to when you say they i mean to my opinion the united states and our allies because they have their strategic interests in that region.
8:35 am
also to. a lot of people talk about oil but you have to know syria it's not rich in oil they have some oil but it's not rich but of course the real oil is in saudi arabia. but syria can be a transit country. you also have to know that or huge guess reserves in the former soviet union i mean the central asian states of the former soviet union so they're for a huge i guess reserves and i think you have to sit in this context how do you confirm the identity of the rebel fighters as you claim that they are coming from the outside they're foreigners how do we have proof of that because they found a lot of. proof of this like. when people die in homes. they find identity cards passports of foreign people. they captured people with
8:36 am
a foreign accent you really are for mercenaries or doing it for the money but you also have no out qaeda which is active in syria because they hope to be find a new you know a new base to establish a new base over there let's just briefly look at turkey's role in all of this historically turkey and syria have had good relations what is the interest in turkey being rather aggressive now against syria what is the what lies in it for them to see unrest in syria as a matter of fact we're already seeing this because at this moment to be sure region in syria or the people in the core of this region in syria they already got a lot of. government from the government in damascus and of course turkey is not happy with this evolution why this change of mind why are they so.
8:37 am
anti. no i think there are different theories is can be true would that be still have this. dream aspirations to make thirty again a. powerhouse which it once once was in the region. during the ottoman era. another factor is that. the fact of the muslim brotherhood they're not really anti western because the origin of the muslim brotherhood. they are what we call rick and. so they are interested in free trade with europe with the united states with the western world i mean we see now in egypt the muslim brotherhood we know with that thirty governments also the president is also pro muslim brotherhood
8:38 am
and maybe they are hoping to establish a new government in syria also pro muslim brotherhoods for economical economical reasons and also political reasons of course because you cannot really split this and you said that the ultimate target in this geopolitical story is iran what is and this is not the first time that this opinion has been voiced or what is your analysis on this where iran is concerned it's fairly clear to me not only to me to a lot of people that purpose is to destroy the iranian regime because. when you're in the west are in a war zone it's it's a hostile regime hostile to the. western world i don't think this is true because i feel safe it also many times to run and i can assure you that the ukrainian government is a very rational government spirit and government always stated
8:39 am
a nuclear program. is a civilian program. while in the west they say no. birth person is to get an atom and bomb or a nuclear weapon and then they told me why should we need to not be a weapon i mean even if we manage to make one appear a weapon. there is a difference between having a nuclear weapon and to be capable to deliver it so there is a big technical step between these two phases and they see even if we have one nuclear weapon and they think we're going to use its. the american government and their allies they will all must see to the middle ages so they have no interest in their own three being destroyed it's so they are much more rational than most people here in the west think now all the opinions you voiced today it's contrary
8:40 am
to the general narrative that we find in a lot of the press lot of the analysis here in belgium or in western europe how is your work and your opinions received in this part of the world unfortunately. most people. here in belgium but i can also. see maybe a broader picture of the western world to your dope in the united states. they're not really aware they don't know what really the situation in the middle east what they know about it's based on cliche is you know like a very black white picture you know the good guys and the bad guys and even amazed that a lot of people don't really even realize. she goes through at the chicken location of it and for them it's somewhere over there in the middle east and the same with syria i mean a lot of people don't know that's the origin of the bathtub or think it was
8:41 am
socially sporty a lot of people say ok the president bashar al assad and his family dollar we course this can't be true but this is not. how can i say this is not the main factor in syria politics the main factor is the origin of the baath party the socialist party where all religions lift together and city as one of the few. maybe the only country in the middle east where you have all these denominations christian but also get all the christian orthodox christian clique orthodox matter i need. we were living together for hundreds of here very peacefully but most people here don't realize this christiane thanks very much for your time it was a pleasure. my
