“Western nations publicly critical of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime have been quietly sending security officials to collaborate with his government, Assad said in an interview broadcast Friday. In an interview with Australia’s SBS news channel, the Syrian leader accused Western governments of hypocrisy for criticizing him while working with him behind the scenes. “This is the double standard of the West in general: They attack us politically and they send us their officials to deal with us under the table, especially the security, including your government,” Assad told SBS. “They all do the same. They don’t want to upset the United States. Actually, most of the Western officials, they only repeat what the United States wants them to say. This is the reality,” he said.
West working with Assad?
