Syria is losing the information war against the West, President Bashar al-Assad has admitted, as violence continued across the country.
“They outplayed us… at the very beginning of the crisis – invented stories,” he told a Russian TV channel.
Mr. Assad also said the results of last week’s elections proved Syrians supported his cabinet’s reforms.
Separately, Damascus refused to provide a report on torture claims as requested by a United Nations committee.
