Assad said Trump administration is on its way to fulfilling its commitment about excluding of terrorism menace. Trump won the presidency in large part on his promise to defeat terrorists. And upon taking office in late January, he ordered his top military leaders to present within 30 days a new draft plan to dismantle the terror group. However, it is unclear whether or not they have delivered a report to Trump.

Assad also said the U.S.-backed military effort against terrorist in Syria has so far amounted to “only a few raids” but “in theory” he remains optimistic about cooperation between his regime and the Trump administration, according to the roughly 27-minute interview the Syrian president did with Chinese TV station Phoenix, which was posted Saturday on Syria’s state-news agency SANA. Many Republicans and military hawks were critical of former President Obama’s efforts on terrorists and his dealings with Assad, the target of a six-year civil war to topple his regime.
