Syria vehemently criticizes Jordan’s role in current crisis

Damascus, SANA-Syria issued a blistering criticism against the Jordanian regime for its role in the current crisis which the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said it has exacerbated the suffering of the Syrian people.

In two identical letters addressed to the UN Secretary General and Head of the UN Security Council, the ministry blamed the current crisis on the terrorist acts of foreign-backed organizations.

The ministry said that the Jordanian regime’s overt support for these organizations has further exacerbated the suffering of the Syrian people, pointing to the glaring discrepancy between the Jordanian regime’s claims of backing a political solution to the crisis and its logistical support for terror organizations.

The ministry described the Jordanian conduct as a “grave violation” of the UN Charter, international law and the UN counter-terrorism resolutions.

The letters indicated that the Jordanian regime had allowed terror organizations to take over border crossings and established training camps for terrorists on its land, adding that it had recently facilitated the entry of thousands of Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists to Busra al-Sham city in Daraa province.

The ministry cited Jabhat al-Nusra abduction of UN peace-keeping personnel a year ago who were not released until a huge ransom was paid to terrorist organizations by Qatar.

Urging it to learn from past experiences, the ministry said the Jordanian regime should realize that the scourge of terrorism won’t stop at Syria’s borders but will affect all the countries backing terrorists.

The ministry concluded by calling on the UN Security Council to take a firm line against the Jordanian regime and enforce its counter-terrorism resolutions.
