Ki-moon believes that al-Qaeda is responsible for the suicide bombings in April that killed over 55 people, although there was no evidence cited.
Faisal Mukdad , the deputy Foreign Minister and government spokesman remarked that the rebels who are fighting against Bashar al-Assad were “criminals and drug dealers.”Mukdad says it was those rebels who “escalated the attacks” and the Syria has a right to defend itself.
The election of al-Assad into power is a justification for the group’s continued assault on the Syrian nation.
Mukdad blames the US government and France for thwarting peace plans; referring to French foreign minister Alain Juppe’s comment “calling for war”. He says, “This is what the West wants – extremist and al-Qaeda forces controlling the whole region.”
