Syrian Mufti: U.S. will soon lose influence over Middle East

PanARMENIAN.Net - The United States will soon lose its influence over Middle East, with Russia and China to replace this nation, top Syrian Mufti Ahmed Badr al-Din Hassoun said on Saturday, March 3.

“Americans think only about themselves, about their economy and hegemony, not about human’s interests…I believe, Americans will soon lose this region [Mideast], China and Russia will win it,” the mufti told RIA Novosti.

The United States wants to cover the region with an umbrella, wants to crash our country and the region, intern it and turn it into an investment area. But we will not surrender,” Hasun said.

He emphasized that Syrian religious leaders support the dialogue between the regime and opposition and back reforms.
