Damascus slammed the European Union policy towards Syria, saying it is based on full ignorance of what is going on in the country.
“The EU has adopted destructive polices against Syria, based on supporting the terrorist groups which sSyrian foreign ministry HQhed the Syrians’ blood and increase their suffering through taking illegitimate sanctions that negatively impact their livelihood,” SANA news agency quoted an official spokesman of the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry as saying in a statement.
“The content of the EU foreign ministers’ statement includes shy reference to the increasing number of foreign extremist sides in the fighting in Syria which requires the EU states to take clear stances in condemning terrorism and adopt suitable measures to halt the flow of the terrorists, particularly from the citizens of the EU countries, into Syria,” the spokesman said.
The statement referred to the hypocrisy of the EU Ministers when they talked about the decision of the Executive Council of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and the UN Security Council resolution 2118, turning a blind eye to the complete cooperation Syria has shown with the international experts, for which the UN Secretary General and the director of OPCW have appreciated.
“Those states have forgotten that Israel didn’t join yet any treaty that aims to ban the proliferation of the weapons of mass destruction, saying nothing about foiling the international efforts to hold an international conference to declare the Middle East a region free of WMD,” the Spokesman added.
