SYRIA’S ASSAD SAYS REBUILDING IS ‘TOP PRIORITY’

DAMASCUS, Syria, Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, said on Monday, that, his top priority was the reconstruction of his country, battered by more than seven years of fierce fighting.

He spoke during a gathering with his foreign affairs minister, Walid Muallem, and other Syrian diplomats in Damascus, according to the presidency.

“Reconstruction is the top priority in Syria, backed up by the continued fight against terrorism,” Assad said.

The Syrian head of state, who has estimated, rebuilding would cost $200 billion, at the very least, has insisted, he would refuse Western contributions.

In an interview with Russia’s NTV network, Assad said, the West “won’t be part of the reconstruction in Syria, because, very simply, we won’t allow them to be part of it, whether they come with money or not.”

On Monday, Assad said, his government would also focus on amending the legislation, the return of refugees, who fled, because of “terrorism,” and reactivating the stalled political process.
