Beijing, Presidential Political and Media Adviser Bouthaina Shaaban said that China 's invitation to Syria to participate in the 2nd Belt and Road Forum is a crucial challenge to US sanctions and a new approach for coordinating policies that are different from those adopted by the US, which interferes in the states' internal affairs.
Speaking to al-Mayadeen TV channel on Thursday, Shaaban said that The Silk Road is not a silk road if it does not pass through Syria, Iraq and Iran, as Syria enjoys a high rank in the 2nd Belt and Road Summit because it is a corner stone on the historic Silk Road, and its sacrifice and its fight against terrorism is a tribute to the Chinese people and all peoples who are endowed with humanity, love and peace in the world.
Shaaban said that the United States arrests women and children in al-Rukban Camp, protects terrorists in al-Tanf area, and occupies a part of Syrian territories, which is very dangerous.
She indicated that Erdogan's regime has not committed to Astana agreement regarding Idleb and it must withdraw from the Syrian territories, adding that the Turkish regime is held responsible for letting the terrorists pass to the Syrian territory.
We will not give up any grain from the Syrian soil, Shaaban said.
Shaaban affirmed that the Syrian people will bear the economic plight as they have borne the terror war on their country.
