Bashar al-Jafari: No State permits Terrorism or abandons its citizens

The UN Security Council held a session yesterday, called for by France, to bargain on the suffering of the Syrians caused by the terrorism financed and supported by France and its western allies and regional tools.

Words delivered by the representatives of the enemies of Syria aimed at mixing cards and deny their responsibility in the crisis suffered by the Syrian People and at raising the morale of the terrorists operating at their orders and encouraging them to continue violence and terrorism.

Syria’s Ambassador to the UN, Dr. Bashar al-Jafari, underlined in his speech that some countries view the humanitarian aid from the perspective of “their political and interventionist agendas,” citing some countries’ participation in providing humanitarian aid, even in small and conditional sums, while imposing unjust economic sanctions which caused grave humanitarian consequences against the Syrian People.

Al-Jafari wondered how some Arab and Islamic countries could talk about providing humanitarian aid to Syria and shed tears over the humanitarian condition of the Syrian People, while these countries had never offered any contribution to the humanitarian response plan which was signed between the Syrian Government and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA).

“We wish intentions were true when some talk about dealing with the humanitarian side of the crisis. I say this because there is the impression in Syria that some want to aid the Syrian People, provided that this aid to be continued till the last Syrian in Syria!” added al-Jafari, calling for the tackling of the causes which led to the suffering amid continued destruction by the foreign-backed armed groups of the Syrians’ means of life, including the infrastructure, health, education, service utilities, communication and transport means and power sources.

Ambassador al-Jafari underscored that no country could permit terrorists and mercenaries to control its cities or to abandon responsibility to protect its citizens, quoting many official statements issued by some Arab, regional and international officials in support of the armed groups in Syria.

Al-Jafari highlighted the Syrian positive response to and cooperation with Kofi Annan’s, the resigned UN Envoy to Syria, six-point plan, not to mention Syria’s welcome to Geneva action group’s final statement and acceptance of Lakhdar Ibrahimi appointment as special representative for the UN Secretary General to Syria.

Al-Jafari pointed out that the non-objective and mistaken reading by some and their insistence on dictations and flagrant interference in Syria’s internal affairs, and the non-cooperation of some countries with Annan’s six-point plan led to the resignation of Annan and to the non-extension of the observers’ mission in Syria.

Ambassador al-Jafari presented the UN Security Council session with a list including 107 names and ID’s of foreign and Arab terrorists who were killed in Aleppo by the Syrian Army, and asked for enlisting it as one of the UN official documents.

Al-Jafari blasted the miserable conditions of the displaced Syrians in countries neighboring Syria, calling on these countries to allow the displaced who want to return home to return to their homeland, Syria, pointing out that some of the camps to receive the displaced Syrians have been unfortunately transferred into military centers for assembling and training terrorists before sending them to perpetrate their crimes against the Syrians.

He underscored that Syria does not want “sectarian democracy”, given the fact that Syria has been and would ever be for all of the Syrians with no exception, saying “Syria is civilization before being a state.”

Ambassador al-Jafari quoted the French FM, Laurent Fabius’s, earlier statements on July the 29th in which he spoke about the delivery of weapons by Qatar and Saudi Arabia and other countries to the armed groups in Syria, calling on France, therefore, to shoulder its responsibilities as UN Security Council permanent member, and respect international law and UN Charter, and UNSC resolutions numbered 2042 and 2043.

Al-Jafari blasted the role played by the Turkish Government in the crisis in Syria as a main “partner in the shedding of Syrian blood” given its hosting of armed, Salafi, Wahhabi, extremist and ignorant groups and leaders with their training camps.

He referred to the smuggling of weapons from Lebanon into Syria by some ‘political sides’ and not by the ‘official Lebanon’ and lambasted the unbalanced and offensive statements issued by the representatives of Morocco, France and Germany during the session, “in deviation of diplomatic traditions.”
