Syrian Diplomat Thinks U.S. Congress Will Show Wisdom on Syria

| 1 Comment

On September 2, 2013,  CBS News correspondent Elizabeth Palmer interviewed Faisal Mekdad, Syria's deputy foreign minister, about President Barack Obama’s August 31, 2013, decision to seek debate in the U.S. Congress before launching an attack on Syria, to punish Syria President Bashar al-Assad for reportedly attacking Syrian civilians with chemical agents on August 21, 2013.

"The Middle East is already on fire now," Mr. Mekdad told Ms. Palmer. "And we think any wisdom in the United States -- and we hope the Congress will exercise this wisdom -- will not allow the United States to tarnish its image once again in wars in the Middle East."

Mr. Mekdad’s statement is in stark a contrast to that of a “Syrian state-run newspaper  who on September 1, 2012, 2013, mocked Mr. Obama’s decision to consult Congress as "the start of the historic American retreat.”

For more, see “Putting Plans Russian Delegation to Sway Congress on Syria Strike.” Mr. Mekdad is quoted in it.
