Tasnim Managing Director Deplores Negative Media Campaign against Syria
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Managing Director of the Tasnim News Agency Majid Qolizadeh strongly criticized negative media propaganda campaign against Syria, and stated that some media are fabricating realities about the crisis-hit country.
Many western and some regional media are trying to exaggerate Syrian crisis or fabricate or downgrade realities on the ground, and portray an insecure image of Syria in which there is public opposition against the central government, said Qolizadeh on Monday in a meetign with visiting Syrian elites.
“Based on a pre-planned scenario, these media are trying to present a dark image (of Syria)," he stated.
"In fact" Qolizadeh said "they (media) are moving in line with anti-Assad opposition and trying to show Syria as a chaotic state."
"That is against the fact that... the situation is calm in Damascus, and that the Syrian Army has full control in most of the important provinces of the country."
Qolizadeh further said that all sides involved in the Syrian crisis have realized that "there is no military solution to the Syrian crisis" and reached agreement over the need for seeking a political and diplomatic solution to the crisis.
The Syrian Army has been clearing the various parts of the country from the foreign-backed terrorists in recent months.
