Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN condemns use of chemical weapons by terrorists.

Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Bashar al-Jaafari, said in a new press statement that a military attack against Syria would be a violation of the UN Charter and also represent an attack on the current UN investigation mission.

However, the Chapter 7 of the UN Charter could be used by Western powers, and thus, they could carry out a war on Syria without the situation that they simultaneously violate their own UN Charter. Such a hypocritical use of Chapters of the Charter of the United Nations (UN) would not be the first time.

The UK government has already presented a new draft resolution, based on the above mentioned Chapter 7 (“protection of civilians”) of the UN Charter. However, it is still a draft resolution and was not yet submitted to the UN Security Council (UNSC).

Further, Russia and China will certainly reject such a resolution that has the only aim to allow the war against Syria, while the statements about the protection of Syrian civilians is just a pretext by Washington France and Britain to wage war against Damascus.

Bashar al-Jaafari, the Syrian Permanent Representative to the UN, further stated that the Syrian government already asked the UN Secretary General to also investigate into three new locations near Damascus where the foreign-backed terrorist groups used chemical weapons against units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Bashar al-Jaafari, made this new remarks at a press conference in New York. The Syrian Permanent Representative to the UN also said that the tripartite meeting of Washington, London and Paris at the UN Security Council (UNSC) to discuss about a military action against Damascus behind closed doors is illegal and has nothing to do with the mission of securing the international peace and stability.

According to Bashar al-Jaafari, this secret meeting of the United States, France and Britain was illegal and it was by far not consistent with the mission of preserving the international peace and security.

Bashar al-Jaafari also underlined in his remarks in New York that the Syrian government in Damascus was briefed on confirmed documents and cables that prove the participation and involvement of Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and other governments, including the UK government, in preparing programs for the use of chemical weapons in Syria through European companies financed by the totalitarian dictatorships in Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Bashar al-Jaafari, further noted that the U.S. administration in Washington tries to pave the ground for a military strike and intervention in Syria is no member of the Non-Proliferation of Chemical Weapons convention, and thus, the remarks by officials from Washington are hypocritical. Al-Jaafari said that the United States is not a member of the Non-Proliferation of Chemical Weapons convention and that it is a hypocritical state as far as the chemical weapons are concerned. Don’t throw bricks when you live in a glass house.

Bashar al-Jaafari also said that the government in Damascus condemns the use of chemical weapons on Syrian soil and requests to hold the sides that used chemical weapons in Syria accountable. Further, Bashar al-Jaafari stated that the Syrian government wants the UN chemical inspectors to continue their investigations on locations in the Arab nation and to make a scientific report that will then be presented to the UN Security Council (UNSC) for study.

Syria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations also called on Washington, France and Britain to give the chemical inspectors enough time for their investigation whether chemical weapons have been used in Syria and to come out with an objective report, including objective results far from political and military meddling.

Bashar al-Jaafari also said at this press conference in New York that Syria is not a war advocate, but a peaceful state that is interested in security and peace in the Middle East and that the current tensions only serve the interests of the Israeli regime in Tel Aviv.
