Syrian president accuses Turkey, Saudi Arabia of supporting terrorists, undermining peace efforts.
President Bashar al-Assad said UN envoy Kofi Annan’s peace plan to end 16 months of bloodshed was being hindered by countries including Turkey and Saudi Arabia providing support for “terrorists.”
“We know that (Annan) is coming up against countless obstacles but his plan should not be allowed to fail, it is a very good plan,” Assad told German television channel Das Erste in an interview.
“The biggest obstacle is that many countries do not even want this plan to succeed so they offer political support and continue to provide the terrorists in Syria with arms and money,” Assad said, according to a transcript in German of the interview conducted in English on July 5 and scheduled for broadcast later on Sunday.

Basher al-Assad is surely no saint. He is one of many cruel dictators in the Muslim World.
But in regards to Turkey and Saudi Arabia, the strongman in Damascus speaks the truth.
It is a one of the greatest shame of our time, that NATO member Turkey supports Islamic Jihad. End even more mad: Both the US and the EU have become sponsors of Islamic terrorism.
The major principality that enjoy global support is the Islamic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Since the Saudi princes supplies he USA with 25 per cent of its energy, Washington has sold its soul to this kingdom. No Islamic crimes against humanity will be penalized, as long as the saudis are the culprits. Not even the mass murder of 2977 Americans in New York city in 2001, where almost all the criminals were citizens of Saudi Arabia.
