Czech Republic, Uruguay, and Chile welcome Russian-US deal on Syria’s chemical weapons.
While Syria’s Ambassador to the United Nations Bashar al-Jaafari has not only said that the published UN report of the inspectors about the use of chemical weapons near Damascus contains nothing new, but also warned against the misinterpretation of this report by the United Nations (UN), the Iranian Assistant Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdullahian underlined in a new statement that the only solution to the Syrian conflict is the consent for the Syrian people to determine their destiny by themselves.
Bashar al-Jaafari, Syria’s envoy to the UN, said in his recent remarks in regards of the published UN report by the inspectors and the results of the laboratory tests of the samples from suburbs of Damascus that the report contains nothing new. The Syrian Ambassador also warned against a misinterpretation of the UN report about the chemical weapons attack in suburbs of Damascus on August 21.
Bashar al-Jaafari added that it is “the irony is that we now face false accusations … based on interpretations and explanations which were not included in the report’s text in the first place.”
As mentioned, also Iran’s Assistant Foreign Minister has made some new statements in terms of the Syrian conflict and the finding of a political and diplomatic solution to the crisis in the Arab country.
Hossein Amir Abdullahian, the Assistant Foreign Minister from Tehran, stressed in his new statements that the only solution to the conflict in Syria would be the allowance for the Syrian people to determine their destiny by themselves and through a free democratic process without any foreign meddling into the internal affairs of Syria.
Hossein Amir Abdullahian made this statement during his meeting with the often very biased Valerie Amos, the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs at the United Nations (UN). The Iranian Assistant Foreign Minister and the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs met in the Iranian capital Tehran today.
During the meeting, Hossein Amir Abdullahian has not only stressed that the only solution to the crisis in Syria would be the permit for the Syrian people to determine their future by themselves and to maintain a democratic process without foreign interferences, but he also criticized the weapons supplies by certain governments into the hands of the foreign-backed terrorist groups on Syrian soil.
Hossein Amir Abdullahian said that the “open support of some countries through supplying the terrorist groups and al-Qaeda with arms has notably aggravated the humanitarian situation” and this statement is certainly reasonable and valid. The criticism against certain Western governments in terms of the arms supply into the hands of terrorist groups in Syria is sadly also valid, of course.
The Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs at the United Nations (UN), Valerie Amos, said during her meeting with the Iranian Minister that any military solution will never be able to solve the Syrian conflict. She added that the crisis in Syria demands the focusing on reaching a political and diplomatic solution to finally end the Syrian conflict. However, it seems that Valerie Amos and the Iranian Assistant Foreign Minister have met but were not able to understand each other in regards of the solution to the Syrian conflict.
But it is certainly correct that a US-led military intervention in Syria is really no solution and will never resolve the conflict in the Arab country. On the contrary, any military action against Syria will worsen the Syrian conflict and increase the suffering of the Syrian people. Not to mention the dire consequences for the entire region of the Middle East.
And in terms of the Czech Republic and Chile, both governments have reiterated that a political solution is the only way to resolve the Syrian conflict. The Czech Foreign Ministry has welcomed the new agreement between Russia and the United States on the chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria and said in a published statement that this Russian-American deal should ensure the putting of Syria’s chemical weapons under an international control and destroying them.
Chile has in principle announced the same. The Chilean Foreign Ministry said in a new statement that Chile supports the Russian-American deal on Syria’s chemical weapons arsenals and that the government of Chile hopes that this agreement will be the first step towards the finding of a diplomatic and political solution to the Syrian conflict.
The statement by the Chilean Foreign Ministry also said that it welcomes this agreement between the United States and Russia and supports the finding of a political solution to the crisis in the Arab country.
And even the government in Uruguay has expressed its support for the deal between Moscow and Washington on Syria’s chemical weapons. A statement by Uruguay says that it welcomes the Russian-US agreement on Syria and supports the finding of a political solution to the Syrian conflict.
