Syrian President Bashar Assad claimed that a "conspiracy was carefully plotted to fragment Syria," in a speech published in the People's Army magazine, pan-Arab website Albawaba reported on Monday.

The embattled leader claimed that the Syrian people would overcome the plot and begin enacting comprehensive reforms.

Assad stated that the unrest in the country would not cause him to relinquish the demand that Israel return the Golan Heights to Syria.

"Hardships make us more resilient, conspiracies make us stronger, and pressure causes us to adhere more to our standards and rights that cannot be liquidated or marginalized," he  said.
