Bashar Assad’s political adviser on Syrian presidential election, Israeli attacks on Syria, reconstruction efforts (E1015)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to the political adviser of Syrian President Bashar Assad, Bouthaina Shaaban. She discusses the presidential elections being held in Syria for the first time since 2014, accusations by NATO countries that the elections are a farce, the presence of international observers from Russia, China, India, Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua and other nations to observe the process, the occupation of Syria by Israel, the US and Turkey, and President Assad’s pledge to liberate every inch of the country. She also talks about redefining the international order away from Western countries, reconstruction efforts in Syria after 10 years of war, regular Israeli airstrikes on Damascus, Tel Aviv’s occupation of Palestine and its recent aerial bombardment campaign against Gaza, the West’s hypocrisy on human rights, attempts to improve relations with Saudi Arabia, why there is no room for negotiations with Erdogan’s Turkey unless it withdraws from Syria, and much more!
