Syrian government ready to grant amnesty to terrorists
In an interview with a French media outlet, President Assad said that his government will offer militants amnesty, in a bid to deescalate the conflict.
He explained that the Syrian government has already offered amnesty, as he believes it is an effective way to stabilize Syria.
Specifically, he said “From what we’ve been implementing during the last three years, because you want genuinely to have peace in Syria, the government offered amnesty for every militant who gives up his armaments, and it worked, and they still have the same option if they want to go back to their normality and to go back to their normal life.”
On a separate note, Mr Assad also indicated his readiness to send a delegation of Syrian diplomats to the peace talks in Astana.
