NEW YORK, (SANA)- Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari, said there is a methodical Israeli pattern of violations and practices that contradict the minimum of the human rights principles and the international humanitarian law which some refrain from subjecting Israel to international accountability.
Delivering Syria’s statement during an open Security Council session on Wednesday discussing ‘The Situation in the Middle East’ item, al-Jaafari lashed out against the efforts of providing cover for failure in finding a solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict due to the Israeli obstinacy through interjecting other unrelated issues such as the false claims brought up by some Arab delegations against Syria.
He expressed deep concern over the frenzied effort of some delegations to repeatedly deviate the Council deliberations regarding from the main objective behind which it was founded which is ending Israel’s occupation of the Arab territories and settling the Arab-Israeli conflict according to the known peace references.
The Syrian Ambassador pointed out that he sent to the UN Secretary General and the Security Council complaints of all the Israeli violations in the form of a number of official letters, the latest of which was on July 17th 2012, which “fell on deaf ears”.
Collusive Approach”of UN General Secretariat Representatives Encourages Israel’s Hostility
He blasted the UN General Secretariat representatives’ overlooking of discussion of the situation in the occupied Syrian Golan and ignoring of the Israeli War Minister’s latest threat of launching an aggression on Syria.
He stressed that the “constant and flagrant collusive approach” of the UN General Secretariat representatives is a clear violation of their duties in periodically updating the Security Council members on the latest developments in Golan, adding that this has encouraged Israel in going on with its hostile policies.
Terrorist Groups Are Sheltered and Funded by Some Parties in Lebanon
Al-Jaafari underscored the firmness of the Syrian-Lebanese relations in the face of the efforts to undermine these relations, considering that the problem lies in the fact that some Lebanese parties are providing funds, arms and shelter to the armed groups to carry out terrorist activities in Syria.
He said that these activities are being carried out under direct military, financial and media support from Qatar and Saudi Arabia and other countries such as the US and France.
Qatar and Saudi Representatives Shed Crocodile’s Tears for the Syrians
“Crocodile’s tears were shed by the representatives of Qatar and Saudi Arabia for the ‘suffering of the Syrian People’, whose blood has been around the clock shed by the Qatari-Saudi conspiracy through their direct military, information, financial, political and diplomatic intervention,” al-Jaafari added.
He pointed out that the Saudi and Qatari diplomacy should have backed the UN envoy to Syria Kofi Annan’s plan and Geneva document instead of pushing for escalation against Syria and its interests in the UN General Assembly following their failure in the UN Security Council, citing the hysterical campaign of the al-Jazeera and al-Arabyia satellite channels, not to mention the statements by Saudi and Qatari officials.
Ambassador al-Jaafari called on the Saudi and Qatari governments to immediately work to respond to the demands of their people and their opposition inside and outside their respective countries, citing, for example, the oppression of the Saudi civilians by the Saudi security and military authorities in Qatif and al-Awamyia regions, and the just demands by more than 250 Qataris from the opposition calling for halting of the spending of the Qatari people money for conspiring against Arab and Islamic people.
He reiterated that neither Qatar nor Saudi Arabia could be talken as an example when it comes to talking about democracy.
