Syria regrets Western countries’ stance against preventing an act of aggression

Syria regretted that the representatives of Western countries in the UN Security Council took a stand against the Russia-proposed draft resolution demanding that Turkey and other countries refrain from committing what would be an act of aggression against Syria.

The regret was voiced by Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal al- Mikdad in his reply to a question posed by SANA reporter.

Mikdad was referring to plans to start foreign ground intervention into Syrian territory.

The Russian draft resolution, he noted, asked Turkey and other countries not to commit such a “folly” and to fully respect Syria’s sovereignty, in addition to demanding an immediate cessation of shelling and incursions across the borders and abandoning all plans of foreign ground intervention in the Syrian territories or providing assistance in that regard.

Turkey and other countries, he added, were also required in the draft resolution to respect the resolutions of the UN Security Council regarding counterterrorism. The resolution also demanded that all countries must prevent and stop the flow of terrorists and the illegal transfer of arms and relevant equipment into Syria.

“We are not surprised by this attitude of the Western countries that have been conspiring against Syria and provided all forms of support to the terrorists,” said Mikdad.

He added that those countries have evaded their responsibilities in respecting the Security Council’s resolutions on combating terrorism, including resolution no. 2253, which has led to prolonging the crisis in Syria and spreading terrorism in the region and the world.
