Bashar al-Assad is the President of Syria since 2000. He succeeded his father, Ḥafiz al-Assad, who ruled Syria from 1971 to 2000. Bashar is also the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, and the General Secretary of the 'Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party.' Many political observers initially believed that his rule would bring an era of democracy, reforms and economic revival in Syria, but Bashar largely followed his father’s authoritarian methods of rule. As a result of his authoritarian rule and other developments in the region, Assad faced an uprising in 2011, which evolved into a civil war. We have curated his famous quotations and sayings from his interviews, speeches, and interactions on subjects, such as Syria, institution, reform, country, Lebanon, ethnic, diversity, citizens, security, mistakes, Israel, etc.
