DAMASCUS, (SANA) – The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that the briefing presented by UN Envoy to Syria Lakhdar Brahimi to the Security Council on April 14th was marked by interfering in Syria's internal affairs and by being removed from the neutrality he should adhere to as an international mediator.
In a statement on Wednesday, the Ministry said that Syria cooperated with Brahimi and will continue to do so in the context of him being a UN envoy only, since the Arab League is a side in conspiring against Syria and since the League's role was over since it terminated the mission of the team led by al-Dabi on February 12th, 2012.
The statement said that the continuation of Brahimi in his mission requires him to prove his neutrality as a UN mediator who adheres to the UN Charter and international law and who realizes that the Syrian people alone can decide their future and choose their representatives without interference by any side, stressing that Brahimi shouldn't take sides, especially if the side he takes is composed – as everyone now knows – of militant groups belonging to Jabhet al-Nusra which is affiliated with Al Qaeda and which practices terrorism against the Syria people.
The Ministry said that if Brahimi wants his mission to succeed, he is expected to begin work with sides involved in order to halt violence and terrorism and stop it at the source, in addition to exposing the role played by some European countries – particularly France and Britain – alongside Turkey and Arab countries like Qatar and Saudi Arabia who fund, arm and train Jabhet al-Nusra terrorists and groups affiliated with them and send them to Syria.
Te statement said that constantly ignoring the political program for resolving the crisis proposed by Syria on January 6th, 2013, shows clear and unjustified bias, since there is no other political program by any side in the Syrian opposition inside the country and abroad which bases itself on national dialogue among Syrians and led by Syria.
