Here is the full Fox News exclusive interview with Syria President Bassar al-Assad, conducted by former Congressman Dennis Kucinich and Greg Palkot. Assad claimed he is fully committed to carrying out a plan to turn over and destroy his government’s chemical weapons, but continues to deny responsibility for last month’s deadly chemical weapons attack, despite new evidence presented by the UN inspectors that implicates the Assad regime.
Assad acknowledged that his government has chemical weapons. “It’s not a secret anymore,” he said, referencing his government’s decision to join the international Chemical Weapons Convention. He also says that President Obama should listen to the “common sense” of the American people as it relates to an attack on his country.
