opposition do you think that your long time goals for this country to cue to that here in visage. is actually being served by the ongoing question. well it's a very important. question thank you for that. you know it's not easy to decide. what we've struggled for a long time to achieve in syria is within reach nowadays because too many complications happened in the uprising of syria i mean loss of. prising started peacefully for democracy can really do for the goals freedom and dignity and imperiously. but. there was a the events because the regime decided to treat that was to wish him all you by military means forcing serious to hold arms to defend themselves at the beginning. there was
a chance really an important chance for extremists and the opposition to enlarge their forces to. gain support from some regional states and maybe global as well international i mean. that's who things started to get worse and worse but we still stick to the. because we have to and we are still fighting to gain a peaceful political process in order to preserve the syrian people aims from the uprising do you have any. specific idea how we can start or you can start this political process because everybody is talking about every consideration but nobody knows how to carry this out. we are trying to. sort out. any kind of understanding and
a kind of agreement. international scale to convince all the political parties involved including the americans were shows trying in their own friends europeans the. gulf states that it's just the way sure that everybody is losing and the result of the situation if it goes on will be a lose lose situation and no one will benefit from that. that's why everybody must call for it. to convince the military groups first of all the regime second round groups although it was a show that it's time it's high time indeed to come to a cease fire to start negotiations about what to do and how to arrange
some peaceful future for the country of course this includes the president and his family must step aside at least for a while. and the power must be passed on to some acceptable personnel from the regime acceptable to the regime and accepted to the opposition as well. to start a transitional period in which. a new constitution and you know legality will be established and the country if those transparent elections that visiting. would result in the current president assad getting the majority of votes would that be acceptable to you and i guess most importantly would that be acceptable acceptable to the world once. any person accepts the principle of voting. the voting is really legal and that transparent
everyone must accept the results the outcome. of the elections you spent fourteen years in prison and definitely your axe to grind with the assad family why are you not among those who are carrying arms at this point why no you're not fighting him because first of all be. studying and practicing politics for decades and i came to the conclusion which is the only logical conclusion that arms will lead to the destruction of a country and to democracy. that's why. it's harmful way it's useless and it will. support the extremists on both sides that's why from the very beginning it was very clear for me and for others that peaceful struggle is the only way towards.
a democratic future of the country you know in the western eyes the home grown civil of position and armed groups are perceived as allies given what you've just said why haven't you or groups who support you've been more vocal in trying to distance themselves from using terror for achieving political goals among the armed opposition you have different political goals. and different political attitudes i believe groups through the armed opposition declared. they will be. in favor of a political process on certain terms and conditions of course what others will not respond to that we have some salafist some. islamic extremists who
have their own agendas so among the sea real. peace for the position. there are really connections with some armed. opposition groups. and there's a common understanding. among them not to harm the civilian is not to attack any. infrastructure establishment or it's only. illegal to use arms to defend lives and civilians now from the very beginning you've been strongly against. international intervention interests here in the forest and one can argue that what we have now in syria is
a form of covering military intervention because you have lower forms going through your borders even you admit that there are some foreign nationals fighting the syrian army in the north which do you think is more damaging the open libyan style military intervention or covered by its so lasting intervention in the form of supplying arms the libyan style. is. completely imaginary when you're right up like it's here it's impossible. all the circumstances are different but syria the regional and international circumstances what happened to the time of year for you to answer that one number two yes day after day the struggle and the fighting in syria is. coming some kind of a proceeding war now day after day that he seems number one and the only group
and the opposition. are becoming more and more hostages and the so that i like. we are losing. independent decision. they can apply what they think or believe and. because they need support in arms nomination fine and. it's certain etc etc freedom can mean very different things to. many different people and the footage that we often get from the north of the fighters. shouting allahu akbar. there are also reports that they are fighting for the creation of their islamic state. and my question to you is is there any danger that in search for greater political freedoms syria may lose other forms of freedom for example social
religious gender freedom and you know all those other aspects of dignity and freedom simply very frankly yes there is a possibility now. and it was not. created just accommodated through days that the syrians made was some of the freedoms that they are used to it's a possibility but there are other possibilities of the world that's why we say now you cannot preserve your right by just being afraid of what it you must be active. we believe that the majority of the syrians would not choose any kind or even just state i sometimes get an impression that here in syria the hatred for the opponent within some people is chong the law for their own country and they would rather be right than merciful to people around them how can you in the current
circumstances and given your experience how can you follow through this period of free conciliation given how far this situation has gone already among some serious the majority of the syrians among the active syria is now from the majority is not active yet and those can. have us to vote from time to time for what is going on how are we doing that. yes we are questioning themselves but i believe this is a reaction will come there which will come to an end sooner or later. because it's not culture or real sort of this you know history of the syrian people thank you very much for three q thank you.

then use however the problem was quickly resolved secondly there were concerns about congestion in the center of london and that didn't turn out to be a problem and that was in no small things to the thousands of volunteers who guided to and from the ennius so things to learn there but such organizers have taken comfort from the fact that the development of the black sea resort is similar to the development of the olympic park in london like in such a. way to the most depressive original flow. into the region with a well developed infrastructure for the south of us like i say in such a way creating a new city. in the middle of nowhere which will turn such into the all year round to soar international winter sport dissemination what to do with these venues
