Al-Jaafari: Turkey’s failure to have non-permanent seat on Security Council scandal

126

Syria’s permanent envoy to the United Nations Bashar al-Jaafari said that Turkey’s failure to have support of UN states to gain a non-permanent seat on Security Council rises to the level of moral scandal and indicates the failure of Turkish policy towards Syria and Iraq.
“Turkey’s having 60 votes in turn for Spain’s 132 is a big relapse and a loss that rises to the level of scandal for the government of Justice and Development party, led by Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and the bankruptcy of his policy,” al-Jaafari told Syrian TV in a phone call.
He added that several envoys of the participating countries expressed their resentment of the Justice and Development party’s policy, particularly towards Syria.
Turkey failed to have a non-permanent seat on UN Security Council for the coming two years; instead, Spain gained the seat with 132 votes.
