Dr. Shaaban: Syria insists it is ready to embrace reforms

 The Syrian government is ready to embrace reform and move towards democracy, Dr Bouthaina Shaaban, Political and Media Advisor of President Bashar al Assad said

Shaabans, who was speaking to Sky News Network on Tuesday, said she wanted change because otherwise the country itself would be at risk.

She said: “Everybody now, both the opposition and the Government recognises this and that there is no other way except to go forward.”

“In fact it will be very good for our country, for our people, this march towards democracy where political parties will compete and young men and women participate in political life. We look forward to a very different era of Syrian history.”

About the martyrdom of civilians, Dr Shaaban said: “It is definitely a huge concern for us and we condemn the violence but they (opposition) should condemn also the killing of our military personnel, our armed forces, our police. Over 500 military and police personnel have been killed by armed groups.”

“Personally I feel there is an organised group, most likely religious extremists, who are conducting assassinations and killings. When you have a violent atmosphere, collateral damage happens,” she added.

She also said: “We hope that by conducting and hastening the national dialogue, we will be able to isolate any armed or violent group and work together with the international community to overcome that big problem.”

She also insisted: “We have no problem at all with peaceful demonstrations” and promised Sky News would have free access to all parts of Syria to cover the protests.
