draft resolution.

A CCTV reportor has interviewed Syrian President Bashar Assad about the draft resolution.

Assad said, "I am not concerned. Since its independence, Syria has been committed to all the treaties it has signed. We will honor everything that we have agreed to do. Secondly, China and Russia are playing a positive role in the UN Security Council to ensure any excuse for military action against Syria will not stand. And more importantly, I want to say, by submitting the draft to the UN Security Council , or by urging the US and Russia to agree on a deal, the US, France, and Britain are JUST trying to make themselves winners in a war against a Syria which is their imaginary enemy. Thus Syria should not be concerned by any such draft or deal."
