Syria Regrets UN Chief's yielding to Pressures of States that Support Syrian Bloodshed

Apr 09, 2013

DAMASCUS, (SANA)- An official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry announced that after Syria had appealed to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon to send a fair, unbiased technical mission to Khan al-Asal village in Aleppo to investigate into a rocket attack by the armed terrorist groups which included chemical, poisonous materials.. Syria regrets that Ki-Moon has yielded to the pressures practiced by countries known for their support to the Syrian bloodshed in order to divert the consultations in this regard from their real context.

"Although the mutual messages until 3rd of April, 2013 have referred to a positive progress, but Ki-Moon, while his presence in the Hague, asked additional investigations which might allow the UN Mission to spread all over the Syrian territories, and this contradicts the Syrian request from the UN and indicates to the presence of hidden intentions at the states which have sought to add those investigations as this constitutes a violation of the Syrian sovereignty," the source added.

It affirmed that Syria couldn't accept such "maneuvers" by the UN, taking into consideration the real negative role which it played in Iraq that paved the way for the US invasion.

The source added that Syria was and is still ready to cooperate with the UN General Secretariat to send the observer mission to Khan al-Asal according to the context of the Foreign Minister's letter sent to Ki-Moon on Saturday, April 6th, 2013.
