Damascus Urges UN to Intervene in ‘Turkish Aggression on Syrian Territory’

17 February 2016 7:35



Syrian UN Ambassador Bashar Jaafari told Sputnik in an interview that he had met with the head of the UN Security Council, Rafael Ramirez, and demanded measures be taken to stop Turkey’s aggressive actions in Syria.

On Sunday, the Syrian Foreign Ministry sent a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the Security Council strongly condemning strikes carried out by Turkey on Syrian territory and called the strikes direct support of terrorists.

“I met with the head chairing the Security Council this month, with the Venezuelan ambassador, and requested attention be given to Turkish aggression on Syrian territory and to hold consultations with the UN Security Council members on this issue in order to stop it and to place responsibility for what is happening on Turkey. This is said in both letters,” Jaafari said by telephone.
