In an interview published by the Syrian news agency SANA, Bashar al-Assad said that he had no choice but to pursue the war until victory, stressing that the negotiations in Geneva had not reached results.

The interview with the Croatian newspaper of Visserangi List seems to have taken place before the Khan Shaikhoun massacre, where no comment had been made concerning to the massacre.

As for his vision of a political solution, Assad spoke of working on two axes: "Combating terrorism" and "making peace with all those who want to lay down arms and return to the homeland" adding that the Geneva negotiations have reached nothing.

In the interview, Bashar al-Assad attacked Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as a "criminal" and said that he had no choice but to win militarily. He also rejected the idea of ​​federalism in Syria.

Geneva-5 ended 10 days ago with few results announced. The Syrian regime remains determined to turn the negotiations into a "counter-terrorism" conference in Syria, ignoring talks of political transition.
