Bouthaina Shaaban, Political and Media Advisor to Syrian President Bashar Al Assad, addressed a talk hosted by the Centre for Policy Analysis on the Syrian crisis. Newsclick presents the video of the talk. Shaaban says there are multifaceted factors responsible for the crisis. She says the expulsion of Syria from the Arab League has caused huge damage. The arming of Syrian rebels has still not abated. Every passing day is a tragedy with 2 million people already displaced, thousands killed and many more orphaned.
