|The Syrian Poeple Make Their Final Demand|
|Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban|
The Syrian government accepts it has to embrace reform and move towards democracy, a key advisor said today. Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban, senior advisor to President Bashar al Assad, said he wants change because otherwise the country itself would be at risk to Muslim brotherhood’s influences.
The public summit was the first since the uprising against President al-Assad's rule started and was conducted with the consent of the government.
