West cooperating secretly with Damascus against militants: Assad
Suleiman al-Khalidi, Reuters, Jun 30 2016

AMMAN – Assad said in an interview to be broadcast on Friday that Western countries had sent security officials to help his government covertly in fighting Islamist militants. In remarks to Australia’s SBS News channel which were carried by Syrian state media, he said Western states were secretly cooperating with his government in counter-terrorism operations. He was quoted as saying:

They attack us politically, and then they send officials, especially security officials, to deal with us under the table, including your government. They don’t want to upset Pindostan. Actually most of the Western officials only repeat what Pindostan want them to say. This is the reality.

There was no immediate comment from Western governments.
