Iraq Minister of Finance: Fall of Assad regime within weeks

December 14, 2012 13:00

Iraqi Minister of Finance Rafe’ Al Iisawi considered on Thursday, that the regime of the Syrian President Al Assad will fall within “weeks”, noting that there are “serious fears” about the use of chemical weapons.

“The international community’s interest in Syria is ascending rapidly” said Al Iisawi on the margin of the International Monetary Fund’s conference in the Jordanian capital Amman. He added that “there are serious fears concerning the use of chemical weapons”.

“I have a feeling that change will happen soon in Syria” noted Al Iisawi while highlighting his personal belief that “it was only a matter of weeks especially in the wake of the battles that take place in the proximity of Damascus’ airport. We have a feeling that developments will be fast”.

“Battles in Rif Dimashq Governorate predict an imminent change”, considered the Iraqi Minister emphasizing “the increasing international efforts that target President Assad’s regime”.

Minister Al Iisawi’s declarations came hours after Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Michael Bogdanov stated on Thursday that the Syrian regime is “gradually” losing control over the country, in the first confession of its kind from the main ally of Assad’s regime. He clarified that it was impossible to eliminate the possibility that the opposition might win the battle and assured that his country is currently looking into a plan to possibly evacuate Russian nationals from Syria.

“The Syrian regime is at the verge of its end. It’s only a matter of time”, declared the General Secretary of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen on Thursday.

“Iraq calls Syrians to solve their impasse through dialog and heed to people’s will to change”, said Iraqi Premier Nuri el Maliki in a press conference held on November 19. He added that Iraq calls for the realization of people’s demands, not through force but through constitutional measures and elections”.
