Ms. Gabbard, Tulsi

Member of the house of representatives, Democrat Tulsi Ms. Gabbard, which was previously considered as a candidate for one of the key positions in the administration of President Donald trump, was found during a trip to Syria with the country’s leader Bashar al-Assad. She told about it on Wednesday, January 25, in an interview with CNN.

“When the opportunity came to meet him [Assad], I did it, because I believe that it is important: if we claim that we do care about the suffering of the Syrian people, we must be willing to meet with anyone if necessary to achieve peace,” said Ms. Gabbard.

Member of Congress noted that, regardless of the relationship, Assad remains President of Syria. “For the sake of any peace agreement, for any possibility of reaching a peace agreement need to carry on with it dialogue,” she said.

Ms. Gabbard also said that the Syrians asked her the question of why the US and its allies support “terrorist groups that destroy Syria such as “al-Qaeda” (banned in Russia — approx. “Of the tape.ru”)”. “I had nothing to say to them,” he admitted.

A member of Congress criticized U.S. policy in the Arab country and said that citizens of Syria during the meetings we spoke about the absence of the country’s moderate rebels. “Let the Syrian people determine their future, not the United States or any other country,” she concluded.

In November, the media called Ms. Gabbard, representing in Congress the state of Hawaii, a candidate for the post of Secretary of Minister of defence or the US Ambassador to the UN. This was preceded by a meeting of the 35-year-old politician with Donald trump winning at that moment at the election of the President of the United States.

Previously, Ms. Gabbard sharply disagreed with the Democratic party on the Syrian issue. In particular, she spoke out against the American plan to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. She also advocated the adoption of a law providing for more stringent checks of refugees.
