Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates, Minister Walid al-Moallem, stressed on the importance for the UN officials to be objective and precise in dealing with the situation in Syria; holding the armed terrorists responsible for hindering efforts to halt violence in Syria.
Meeting the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, Hervé Ladsous, and the accompanying delegation on Wednesday, al-Moallem reiterated Syria’s commitment to the plan of the UN Special Envoy to Syria, Kofi Annan and its full cooperation with the UN observer mission.
Al-Moallem underscored the importance of the international community’s support to Annan through obtaining cooperation of regional countries which have influence on the terrorist groups, “those countries which instigate, fund and harbor armed terrorist groups and encourage them to reject political work and not to lay down their arms.”
He said that Syria today is in a state of self-defense of its sovereignty and territorial unity, adding that at the same time Syria’s doors are open to those who want dialogue and the political solution.
The meeting dealt with the situation in Syria since the beginning of implementing Annan’s six-point plan to date and means of overcoming obstacles hindering the implementation of the plan in light of escalating terrorism in some Syrian areas.
Ladsous also met Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Fayssal Mikdad, and discussed with him the results of Annan’s recent visit to Syria and the UN mission’s tasks, with Mikdad stressing Syria’s commitment to protecting the UN observers and making their mission a success.
