Syrian deputy foreign minister has said that Damascus will not give in to threats of a US-led military strike against his country, even if World War III breaks out.
Faisal al-Miqdad said in an exclusive interview with AFP on Wednesday that the Syrian government has taken “every measure” to counter a potential foreign aggression.
“Syria has taken every measure to retaliate against … an aggression,” Miqdad said without elaborating, adding, “The Syrian government will not change position even if there is World War III. No Syrian can sacrifice the independence of his country.“
He also stated that Syria is mobilizing its allies ahead of a possible foreign military intervention.
