Jaafari lashed out at countries which are backing terrorist groups in Syria, saying these states are exploiting from the Syrian people’s suffering for political gains.
Syria’s Permanent Representative at the United Nations, Bashar Jaafari, lashed out at countries which are backing terrorist groups in Syria, saying these states are exploiting from the Syrian people's suffering for political gains.
At a Security Council session held on Friday, Jaafari said said it has become known to everyone that these countries support and protect terrorist organizations.
He added that these regimes are covering up the terrorists' crimes at the Security Council when they refused Russia’s request to include “Ahrar al-Cham movement” and “Jaish al-Islam” on the UNSC's list of terror groups, despite the fact that these groups are operating in an alliance with Nusra Front terror organization on the ground and carrying out terrorist activities.
"Some states claim to care for human rights and the Syrian people, making statements left and right as if their only concern is the safety, stability, welfare, and interests of the Syrians, but in reality these states’ actions on the ground prove otherwise," SANA news agency quoted the Syrian envoy as saying.
"The identity of the perpetrator of the terrorist bombings that took place recently in the cities of Jableh and Tartous is known to the UN Under-Secretary-General."
Jaafari meanwhile, dismissed as baseless claims that the Syrian government has been preventing humanitarian aid from entering the town of Daraya.
"The Syrian government granted the UN 19 agreements to deliver humanitarian aid, but only 3 of those were carried out," he noted, assuring that delays in grant agreements only seeks to ensure the security of UN teams.
