Jumblat: Syrian Crisis Can Only Be Solved through Overthrowing its Regime

Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat rejected on Monday Syrian President Bashar Assad’s remarks that his regime will remain, “but Syria will be divided.”

He said in his weekly editorial in the PSP-affiliated al-Anbaa magazine: “The political solution that calls for the end of the Syrian regime is the only way to settle the crisis.”

“No sound human being cannot but support the political solution to the crisis because the alternatives will mean the eruption of civil war,” he added.

“It’s only logical that the political solution favor the Syrian people and its demands,” he noted.

Furthermore, the MP said that he is still hoping that Russia would play a central role in ending the crisis, which requires immediate action “because experience with the Syrian regime has taught us that it is adept at stalling.”

Jumblat wondered however if reaching a political solution would be possible under the current ruling family in Syria, noting that it had squandered opportunity after opportunity for saving the country from its crisis.

In addition, the PSP leader rejected media claims that the Syrian regime has become closer to ending the people’s uprising, deeming such reports as “delusions because the Syrian people will not back down from their demands after all the sacrifices they have presented.”

“The security solution will only complicate matters,” he stressed.

“A united Syria is more important that the survival of the regime,” said the Druze leader.

Turning to local Lebanese developments, the MP noted that the USD 2.5 billion deficit in the energy sector could have been employed years ago in building new power plants “instead of now using such funds in wasting time to find power-generating vessels.”

On the telecommunications sector, he remarked that its services have “deteriorated greatly” after the renewal of the licenses of the mobile phone providers, despite some ministers’ reservations on the matter.

Addressing the possession of arms outside the authority of state institutions, Jumblat noted: “We have repeatedly said that this issue can be tackled through the national dialogue, which we hope will be convened soon.”

“Only the state can protect the Lebanese and limit the possession of arms instead of allowing it to be spread chaotically among the people,” he added.
