Syrian President Bashar Assad said that most of the fighters in the country, who were released from prison, chose to cooperate with the Syrian government. This was saidd by French MP Nicolas Dyuik after meeting with the Syrian leader.
According Dyuik, Assad also spoke out against the torture of prisoners, as it further sets people against the government.
“When asked about Assad’s torture, he said that their use is not in the interest of the Government of Syria, as it can drastically put even more people against him. In Syria, the opposite is happening. He said that they are trying to reach an agreement “, – said Dyuik to the Sputnik agency.
Quoting Assad, the French MP said that as a result of 60-70% of the Islamists, who have been in prison and then were released, returned to their families and prefer to cooperate and support the state.
