Expert: Gaddafi's fate expects Syrian president

Expert: Gaddafi's fate expects Syrian president

Azerbaijan, Baku, March 31 /Trend, A.Tagiyeva/

Given that Syrian President Bashar Assad has not conducted the promised reforms, he will not be able to avoid the fate of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, the head of the London Centre Arab East Salim Zuhair said on Thursday, commenting on yesterday's speech by Assad.

"The Syrian people are disappointed. The people waited for certain reforms from the president, which Assad did not raise in his speech," Zuhair told Trend by telephone from London.

He said the opposition would agree upon peace talks if the president would conduct wide-ranging reforms.

"The opposition will not agree on minor reforms in the economic and social life. They all were waiting for mainly lifting of the state of emergency and implementation of other important reforms regarding the country's political life," said Zuhair.

On Wednesday, Syrian President made an appeal to the people at the People's Council (Parliament). In his speech, Assad did not mention the intention to cancel the law on state of emergency, although the possibility of this was mentioned by various officials of the country in recent days.
The key remarks in Assad's speech were the idea that Syria faced a conspiracy by Israel and the U.S.
"Syria is facing a big conspiracy. The purpose of the conspirators is to split and break Syria," said Assad.

Earlier Tuesday, Assad accepted the resignation of the government. The new Cabinet is expected to be formed in the coming days.
Recently the Vice President of Syria Farouk Shara said that over the next two days, President Bashar Assad will announce "significant decisions" taken by the country's leadership under pressure of mass protests.

The adoption of an emergency plan for political reforms in the Syrian authorities was announced last Thursday, a week after the riots in the city Daraa, located on the border with Jordan. The plan, particularly envisages the introduction of a multiparty system, adoption of a new law on media, judicial reforms, as well as strengthening the fight against corruption, which causes particularly popular discontent.
The impetus for the events in Daraa, where the riots began and later spread to other parts of the country was the arrest of students who wrote anti-government slogans on walls and fences. People took to the streets to demand their release. The clashes with police last week killed dozens of people.
Zuhair also stressed that the situation in Syria after Assad's speech only worsens, and this time slogans about the president's resignation will start to be sounded.
The expert also added that after yesterday's speech, it will be difficult for Assad to stay in power.

"Assad's time has already expired. Like several other former heads of Arab countries, he will also have to go," he said.
The expert said the revolution in Syria will be delayed like in Libya.

"The president does not agree to leave power, and the rebels will not calm unless they achieve Assad's resignation," said Zuhair.
