Assad: most Arab countries maintain relations with Syria

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said that most Arab countries have maintained their relations with Syria, but not publicly, because they fear pressures.

According to him, these countries have expressed their support for Syria and hoped it defeat terrorism. 

"However, Western pressures and U.S. strain in particular were so severe on these countries that they opted to keep away and not to open their embassies in Syria, particularly the [Persian] Gulf states," PressTV cited Assad as saying.
