Western media are biased in covering the conflict in Syria hushing up victims among the civilian population in the areas that are not under control of the Syrian government, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said in an interview with Danish TV 2.
"In every war there are victims, there are innocent victims. And that’s why every war is bad war," he said. But looking at pictures in western media, one can see that they publish only "few pictures of children that suit their political agenda," he said.
The president said in two days that TV2 correspondent Rasmus Tantholdt has been in Syria, dozens of people, including children, women and elderly have died in shelling from the eastern part of the city.
"And the Western corporations didn’t talk about them," he said. There was "not a single statement" regarding that, said Assad accusing the West of propaganda, as well as "demonization of the government of Syria".
