Aug 03, 2012

DAMASCUS, (SANA)-Syria expressed regret over the news of resignation of the UN Envoy to Syria Kofi Annan from his post and his request not to extend the mission, Foreign and Expatriates Ministry announced  on Thursday.

"Syria has always declared and proved its full commitment to implementing the plan of Annan with its 6-point, and cooperated with the observers' team in achieving the hoped-for mission.. but the countries which want to destabilize the situation in Syria and voted for the said plan at the UN Security Council are the same countries that obstructed and still seek to foil this mission, because the intentions were not true in helping Syria overcome its crisis… that obstruction was represented by supporting and harboring the armed terrorist groups leading to the continuation of violence in the country," The Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The statement added that Syria is still committed to combating terrorism in light of the Syrian laws and the relevant UN Security council decisions in order to restore security and stability to the country and protect the Syrian innocent citizens.

It stressed that the Syrian government still believes in the comprehensive national dialogue as the only way to come out of the crisis as well as the national reconciliation among the Syrian sides without any foreign intervention as to achieve the Syrian people's aspirations.

The Foreign Ministry concluded by underlining that the Syrian government is still adhered to cooperating with the international observers' team to fulfill the plan of Annan.
