Syria’s President Bashar Al-Assad is set to make a TV speech tomorrow. In his last speech he announced that Syrian troops would be leaving Lebanon.
It’s hoped that tomorrow’s speech will be either to announce radical reforms, or to announce that Syria is set to ‘fully co-operate’ with Mehlis. Either way it shows thatSyria is running scared after the recent tough UN Resolution threatening ‘further action’. Syria has learnt, it seems.
Party members say Bashar is set to call BOTH for progress on reforms, and for co-operation with Mehlis. But he’s not expected to respond directly to Mehlis’s request for interviews with the ‘Hariri Six’.
