ALBA warns against NATO move in Syria

Latin America’s Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) has warned the NATO alliance against any military action in Syria and also criticized the Western alliance’s intervention in Libya.

Following a Friday meeting in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas, ALBA foreign ministers issued a statement, describing the NATO move in Libya as a “dangerous precedent,” Reuters reported.

The Latin American bloc warned the Western military alliance against taking advantage of Syria’s political problems as a pretext to attack the country.

Venezuela, a prominent member of the bloc, also called for imposing sanctions against NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen for what it said were crimes committed by the military alliance’s officials.

“Sanction the secretary-general of NATO. Look for him Interpol. They continue bombing cities, killing children. Is there proof? Do you want proof? They themselves have said that there are about 20,000 dead in Libya,” Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez told ALBA representatives.

He also described the months-long NATO intervention in Libya that left many civilians dead as an example of “imperialist” aggression.

Chavez also urged ALBA members to “send a commission of foreign ministers to Damascus because now they aim at Syria and they aim at the world.”

ALBA, which was established in 2004, comprises of Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Ecuador and the Caribbean islands of Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, and St. Vincente and the Grenadines.

Hundreds of people, including security forces, have been killed during clashes in Syria since the beginning of the crisis in mid-March.

The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country and the security forces have been given clear instructions not to harm civilians. The gangs are financed and supported by US, France, Israel and their regional allies. This terrorist group kills civilians then blame the Syrian Security Forces. The US-Backed armed groups also kill the security forces. On the contrary to the reality in Syria, the world media misinforms the people and lies about what is really hapening in Syria. Especially Al- Ja zeera Tv and some west media are producing false news about Syria. These coloured media say that they will go on producing false news if Syria continue to be a key between the Iran, Islamic Resistances like Hamas, Islami Jihad and Lebanese Hezbollah movements.
