Syria Warns against Attempts to Undermine Its Unity, Territorial Integrity
The Syrian government warned on Thursday against any attempt to undermine the country’s unity and territorial integrity under whatever names, a source in Foreign Ministry said.
The government “warns any party against attempting to undermine the territorial integrity of Syria and the unity of its people under whatever names,” the source said in a statement to state-run SANA news agency.
The warning, it added, targets everyone, including the group that are conferring in al-Rmeilan city in Hasaka province.
“Raising the issue of a federation or that of state federalization would affect the territorial integrity of Syria, which goes against the Constitution, the national concepts and international resolutions,” the source said.
“Any declaration to that effect would be without any legal value and void of any legal, political, social or economic effect as long as it does not reflect the will of the entire Syrian people with all their political leanings and social spectra, who are all committed to the national unity and territorial integrity of their country,” the source added.
The source went on saying that “The main task for our people now is combating terrorism, and any deviation from this goal would be considered support for terrorism and for all those who try to weaken Syria and undermine the will of its heroic army in its endeavor for restoring security and stability nationwide.”
