Following two suicide attacks in Idlib on Monday, the Syrian government has accused the West of ... supporting terrorist regimes across the Middle East? Commenting on continued violence in the country and its brokered peace plan with the U.N., Syria’s deputy foreign minister and government spokesman Faisal Mukdad told The Telegraph that U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is “biased,” and accused the U.S. and France of attempting to sabotage the peace plan. Mukdad also accused France’s foreign minister of “calling for war,” and added that the West wants “extremist and al Qaeda forces controlling the whole region,” in an apparent reference to Western support of aiding rebels, whom Bashir al-Assad’s regime has continually said are “armed terrorists.”
