Syria: Iran’s envoy about the Western propaganda-campaign against Damascus.
The Iranian Ambassador to Syria, Mohammad Reza Raouf Sheibani, spoke in a new interview from Monday about the propaganda campaign of the West against the Syrian government in terms of the alleged use of chemical weapons by the units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) against the foreign-backed terrorist groups and also against Syrian civilians.
Iran’s envoy to Syria is convinced that the media campaign by the West is not based on facts and just carried out to maintain and implement the Western agenda in the Middle East.
Mohammad Reza Raouf Sheibani, the Iranian Ambassador in Damascus, said in his interview from Monday, that the West seeks to falsely portray the Syrian government as having been behind the recent chemical attack(s) in the Arab nation, while no “rational mind” would be able to accept “the notion” that the government in Syria’s capital Damascus would resort to the use of chemical weapons near the capital just when a team of UN chemical weapons inspectors are based there – only 20 kilometres away from the site of attack (Jobar).
Of course, this statement by Mohammad Reza Raouf Sheibani is as logical as the recent statements by the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in his interview with a Russian newspaper.
The idea that the Syrian government would order the use of chemical weapons to attack the foreign-backed terrorists and civilians in Jobar (near Damascus) on the same day when the UN chemical weapons inspectors are already in the capital of Syria is not only far-fetched but stupid.
There is no doubt that the media campaign by the Western mass media and the allegations of Western governments, including Washington, Berlin, Paris and London, but also the Israeli regime in Tel Aviv, is not based on facts.
Further, the alleged evidence in the hands of Washington and London that confirms the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian army in e.g. Jobar was not presented so far. In addition, Russia has already stated that there is no evidence for the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government (Syrian army) and that the West should present their alleged evidence.
Iran’s envoy to Syria further said in his recent interview in terms of Syria and the war propaganda by the West against Damascus that even in case one assumed that the government in Damascus had ignored the presence of the chemical weapons inspectors from the United Nations (UN) in the Arab nation and had carried out such a chemical weapons attack anyway, this situation would only mean providing an excuse for Washington and its allies and proxies to engage in a military intervention in Syria – at least, according to Mohammad Reza Raouf Sheibani, the Iranian Ambassador to Syria. The Iranian envoy in Damascus also said in his interview that this situation would mean in “one way or another” a political suicide.
Mohammad Reza Raouf Sheibani has further raised the rhetorical question if there is really anybody who can buy such statements that a government (the Syrian leadership in Damascus),which has been “under the most difficult conditions and has been resisting all sorts of military, political, security and economic pressures for nearly two and a half years” and which is currently in a better situation on the battlefield in Syria would really “engage in such an act?”
Iran’s envoy to Syria further suggested in direction of Washington that the U.S. administration should not repeat “old mistakes” and that it should learn the lessons from their occupation and mistakes of Afghanistan and Iraq as well as from the current ongoing developments in Libya and North Africa.
Mohammad Reza Raouf Sheibani also mentioned some doubts in his interview from Monday. The Iranian Ambassador in the Syrian capital Damascus expressed doubt that the U.S. administration in Washington is really capable of implementing its threats against Syria – given the current global conditions and the current conditions in the Middle East, but also the geostrategic position of Syria and the domestic situations in the United States.
Sheibani also mentioned the public opinion in the United States in regards of another senseless war of the U.S. military against a country in the Middle East. Nevertheless, so the Iranian envoy in Damascus, such a threat against the Syrian nation must be dealt with seriously.
