The British Foreign Secretary has accused Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah and Iran of “propping up” Syrian President Bashar al - Assad.
The allegations made by Hague in Jordanian capital of Amman are yet another sign of the West’s frustration with the advances the Syrian government forces are making against foreign-backed terrorists in the country. Speaking at a news conference with his Jordanian counterpart Nasser Judeh, William Hague failed to control his anger over the Syrian Army’s progresses in al-Qusayr. "It is very clear that Syrian regime is receiving a great deal of support ... from outside Syria from Hizbollah and Iran”, he alleged. "This is a regime that is increasingly dependent on external support," Hague claimed. Ahead of a meeting of the so-called ‘Friends of Syria’ grouping, he said: "The regime is being propped up by others outside, further undermining its legitimacy”. Britain and its allies in the so-called ‘Friends of Syria’ grouping have revealed their real intention behind convening meetings and discussions, which is to oust President Bashar al-Assad. The fact was exposed before the meeting of the grouping in Jordan, where Hague moaned that “Syrian President Bashar al-Assad cannot be part of a solution to the Syrian crisis”. "We want a solution without Assad. We do not accept the stay of Assad," Hague said ahead of the meeting in Amman. William Hague also said the UK government will renew its attempts to seek to lift an embargo against foreign-backed terrorists in Syria in a fresh bid to provide them heavy weapons. The developments come as the Syrian Army continues to advance deeper into the strategic town of Qusayr, an area which has been the focal point of clashes between government forces and terrorists for weeks. The army forces have managed to restore security and stability to Al-Akari and Tal Sar villages and hunted down rebels in the town of al-Hamidieh on the outskirts of al-Qusayr, state-run SANA news agency said Wednesday. The army pushed its way into al-Qusayr city early Sunday after taking control of its surburb after 46 days of battling.
