An analyst in Syria says Assad’s speech offers an explanation of his planned political reforms.

The analyst said that the security situation is deteriorating rapidly now and Syria needs a stable environment in order to institute political reforms. So combating violence and carrying out reform are equally important tasks for Syria now.

The analyst also said that Assad for the first time expressed the wish to stop violence together with the efforts of the opposition. And Assad suggested that anyone who wants to participate in the political reform must stop violence first.
